WICHITA, Kan. – Four Shockers scored 12 or more points in Wichita State’s 89-61 wire-to-wire exhibition win over Missouri Southern Thursday night in Charles Koch Arena.

In her Shocker debut, Jane Asinde scored a team-high 17 points in 18 minutes off the bench to go with eight rebounds. Seraphine Bastin filled the stat sheet like usual, tallying 15 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Mariah McCully scored 11 of her 15 points after halftime and DJ McCarty chipped in 12 off the bench.

Wichita State pounded the glass, pulling down 63 rebounds and outrebounding the Lions by 20. The Shocker defense held Missouri Southern to just 24 percent shooting.

Asinde poured in all eight points in just four minutes of game time off the bench.

A 7-0 run, capped by a McCarty coast-to-coast layup, just three minutes into the second quarter forced a Missouri Southern timeout and the lead at 15.

Missouri Southern briefly pulled within 10 before Wichita State closed the half on a 13-3 run to take a 52-32 lead into halftime. Bastin and Asinde scored a game-high 13 points apiece, followed by nine points and 10 rebounds from Strong.
