3.6Wichita State (25 3, 15 1): VanVleet scored 21 points on 8 of 14 shooting in the first meeting and Carter made 7 of 11 shots and scored 17 points The Shockers forced 15 turnovers and committed eight in the first meeting, scoring 19 points off those Sycamores turnovers WSU has won five straight over Indiana State. Baker is coming off his first career double double against Evansville on Sunday, 18 points and a career high 15 rebounds. “Honestly, I want to credit Evansville because they’re really good shooters and a lot of those misses were really soft coming off the rim and they were right by the basket,” he said. “It’s big for Fred and I to get a lot of rebounds, and even Tekele, it’s one less pass for us to get out in transition and run.”
Indiana State (14 14, 10 6): WSU pressed the Sycamores in the first meeting and recovered in time to guard shooters and kept them from beating the press to score. “We started the game decent over there and we’re up 14 10 and it was never a game after that,” Indiana State coach Greg Lansing said. “They amped it up and we couldn’t answer. To tell you the truth, I’m not sure we can beat them. We’re going to try to compete a little harder.” Indiana State made 3 of 13 three pointers in a 74 57 loss on Feb. 11. WSU did a particularly good job on Gant and Kitchell, who can spark the offense with outside shooting. Neither made a three pointer and they combined for 11 points and eight rebounds. The Sycamores lead the Valley in scoring (68.2 points) in MVC games.
