No. 3 Wichita St tops Drake to go to 29-0

WICHITA, Kan. — Tekele Cotton had 21 points, Darius Carter came off the bench to score 15 and No. 3 Wichita State pounded Drake 83-54 Saturday night.

Wichita State (29-0, 16-0 Missouri Valley Conference) is the first team to start 29-0 since Illinois in 2004-05 and is two wins away from a perfect regular season.

Fred VanVleet scored 15 for the Shockers, who cut down the nets after the game to celebrate their Missouri Valley championship.

Daddy Ugbede scored 14 points, Jordan Daniels had 13 and Aaron Hawley 10 for Drake (14-14, 5-11), which had more turnovers (20) than field goals (18).

In the deciding portion of the game, only halftime provided the Bulldogs some respite.

Wichita State wrapped a 31-4 run around the break, an onslaught so complete that the Shockers completed the 14-1 portion to start the second half without Drake even attempting a field goal.
