Wichita State vs Drake

Wichita St. 75, Drake 63


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Nick Wiggins scored a season-high 18 points off the bench and Wichita State beat host Drake 75-63 on Wednesday night to match its best start in 59 years.

Malcolm Armstead added 14 for the Shockers, who are 13-1 for just the second time since starting with 16 wins in 17 tries in 1953-54. The 1982-83 team also started 13-1.

Wichita State broke things open with an 18-3 run at the outset of the second half in winning their second Missouri Valley Conference game in as many tries.

The Bulldogs got within 69-61 with 1:01 left, but Wichita State had little trouble running out the clock.

Freshmen Joey King and Micah Mason combined for 29 points for the Bulldogs (6-7, 0-2), who committed 19 turnovers in falling back below .500.
