Wichita State uses big run to rout Drake

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — Alex Harden and Jamillah Bonner each scored 21 points to lead Wichita State to a 73-49 win against Drake in the championship game of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament on Sunday.

Alie Decker had 12 points and Michelle Price added 11 points and nine rebounds for the second-seeded Shockers (26-6), who won the tournament for the second year in a row.

Lizzy Wendell led fifth-seeded Drake (17-15) with 20 points. Kyndal Clark added 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Harden was 9 for 19 from the floor and had eight assists.

Wichita State used a 23-8 run over the final 8:34 of the first half to take a 45-28 lead.

Hardin, the two-time MVC Defensive Player of the Year, scored twice from long range and Bonner added a baseline jumper to start the run. Price chipped in with a three-point play to push the lead to 33-20.

Drake, which upset top-seeded Indiana State in Saturday’s semifinals, never got closer than 15 points in the second half.

The Shockers, who beat Drake twice in the regular season, have won four in a row after dropping three straight from Feb. 23-March 1.

Wichita State lost to Texas A&M 71-45 in the first round of last year’s NCAA tournament in its first appearance.
