Wichita State 69, Baylor 62

WACO, Texas -- One of the most difficult things to do when playing a zone defense is identifying shooters on the perimeter.

No. 8 Wichita State used outside shooting to exploit No. 16 Baylor's zone in a big way on Saturday, ending the Bears' 46-game nonconference home winning streak.

Conner Frankamp scored 17 points, including a 3-pointer with 2:50 to go that sparked a game-ending 7-0 run in the Shockers' 69-62 win.

"He's a great shooter, and we look for him against the zone," Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said. "It's why he's out there. He does a great job of letting it go with confidence."

The Shockers shot 63 percent (10 of 16) from 3-point range, including 5 of 8 from Frankamp. Wichita State forced Baylor to miss its last five shots and made four of five free throws in the final 1:38.

"Ten for 16, that's hard to do if there's no defense on you, so that was the big difference," Baylor coach Scott Drew said.

Shaquille Morris added 15 points for Wichita State (6-1), which also received 11 apiece from Landry Shamet and Darral Willis Jr. Shamet also controlled the flow of the offense with seven assists and one turnover.

"We kept telling ourselves, `It's just a zone,'" Shamet said. "No discredit to them, but that's what we were saying. Sometimes we get like, `Oh God, it's a zone, what do we do?'"

Manu Lecomte scored 12 of his 15 points in the first half for Baylor (5-2), and Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. overcame a scoreless first half to finish with 13 points before fouling out in the final 30 seconds. King McClure scored 12.

Neither team led by more than seven, but the Shockers never trailed after a pair of Shamet 3-pointers put them up 33-29 at halftime. Baylor got within two three times before getting even with 3:10 to go on a three-point play by Jake Lindsey.

But Baylor never wrestled the lead away, thanks to a veteran Wichita State team answering each run.

"They're really organized in offense and defense," Lecomte said. "They made us work and we tried to make them work, but they've very patient, too, on offense. And that's how they pulled it out."

Baylor started the week undefeated, but lost twice to Top 25 teams. The Bears were down to seven scholarship players after their top reserve, senior forward Terry Maston, broke his shooting hand in their 76-63 loss at No. 21 Xavier on Tuesday night.
