The Wichita State Shockers put on a clinic Saturday, shooting 80 percent from the field during the second half of their 91-74 road win over the Davidson Wildcats. Joe Ragland finished with 30 points, just one short of a career high. The Shockers were up just 39-38 at halftime, but the senior's big day paved the way for a 52-point second half.
Davidson forward Jake Cohen scored 25 points despite playing just 19 minutes due to foul trouble. If he had been able to stay in the game, the Wildcats may have been able to keep pace with the Shockers. Instead, they were dominated in the paint. The Shockers outscored the Wildcats 58-28 inside, and held a 33-22 advantage on the boards.
The win solidified the Shockers' place atop the Missouri Valley Conference standings. At 24-4 overall and 14-2 in the MVC, they currently sit two games ahead of Creighton with two games left in the regular season.
