Shockers down Baylor, break home win streak

WACO, TX — No. 8 Wichita State snapped No. 16 Baylor’s 46-game non-conference home winning streak Saturday afternoon.

Conner Frankamp scored a team-high 17 points on 5-of-8 three-point shooting and tied Landry Shamet‘s recently established school record for consecutive games with a three-pointer (now 29-and-counting).

Shamet finished with 11 points, seven assists and just one turnover in 36 minutes. Shaquille Morris added 15 points, and Darral Willis Jr. tacked on 11 points and six rebounds.

Baylor (5-2) lost a non-conference game at the Ferrell Center for the first time since December, 2012 (vs. Northwestern). The Bears’ streak was the second-longest in Division I behind Duke (136).

WSU extended its own road winning streak to seven games and claimed its first top-25 road win since February 11, 2012 (89-68 at No. 12 Creighton).

The Shockers are a national-best 42-6 in true road games since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

WSU outrebounded Baylor 38-36 and hit 10-of-16 attempts from three-point range (.625). The Shockers finished at 43.5 percent overall from the field, while holding Baylor to 37.3 percent shooting.
