The Shockers used a 16-0 second-half run to put some distance between themselves and the Bradley Braves on their way to a 73-39 win Saturday night.
If there was any doubt that No. 20 Wichita State would take care of the Bradley Braves, that doubt was quickly erased when the Shockers went on a 16-0 second-half run en route to a 73-39 win Saturday night.
In total, Wichita State outscored Bradley 41-16 in the second half to turn a nine-point game at halftime into a laugher in the final minutes.
All ten Shockers to play had at least two points, but guard Malcolm Armstead had the most complete game of anyone, totaling 10 points, eight assists, five rebounds and four steals.
More than half of Wichita State's production came off the bench. Nick Wiggins' 12 points paced the Shockers in the scoring column, and Jake White tossed in 11 of his own to go along with a game-high ten rebounds.
Walt Lemon Jr. had 14 for Bradley, but was the only Brave to score in double figures. Bradley was also dominated inside, getting out-rebounded 39-17.
