No. 4 Shockers Trump Aces

Associated Press - February 16, 2014 10:11 pm

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Ron Baker scored 26 points and Fred VanVleet finished with 18 points, eight assists and five steals, leading No. 4 Wichita State to an 84-68 victory Sunday at Evansville.

The Shockers (27-0, 14-0 Missouri Valley Conference) remained one of two perfect teams in major college basketball and extended their school-record winning streak. They are the 21st team in Division I history to go 27-0, a list No. 1 Syracuse could join later this week.

But getting No. 27 sure wasn’t easy.

D.J. Balentine and Egidiju Mockevicius each scored 19 points, not quite enough to prevent Evansville (11-16, 4-10) from losing for the fourth time in five games.

Evansville spent most of the second half trying to dig out of a double-digit deficit and got as close as 65-60 with about 6 minutes to play. But Wichita State sealed it with a late 13-4 spurt.
