WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Tyson Etienne and Morris Udeze both scored 16 points and Wichita State breezed to a 71-58 victory over Norfolk State. Dexter Dennis added 10 points for the Shockers (7-2), who have won four straight at home. Dana Tate Jr. scored a career-high 22 points for the Spartans (9-3).
The Shockers led 29-23 at halftime but went nearly 10 minutes without a made field goal in the first half.
“I’m attempting for all of us to come out with a killer instinct,” said Etienne. “We struck first tonight but we let off the gears. It’s something you have to find.”
The win over Norfolk State kicked off a four-game homestand for Wichita State. The Shockers have bounced back with a win after each of their two losses this season.
“It feels good, it feels good man. It was a tough one we lost against K-State, but we got in the gym, practiced and we rallied together,” said Udeze. “It’s easier to separate during a loss but us coming together and getting this one is big.”
With the win, Wichita State improves to 7-2 on the season. The Shockers will host Alcorn State on Tuesday.
