The Wichita State women’s team made its first eight shots and never trailed Thursday, beating Bradley 62-58 in Peoria, Ill.

The Shockers’ early hot shooting built a 17-7 lead, and WSU had a seven-point lead at halftime. The Shockers increased the advantage to 47-31 early in the second half. Bradley whittled the lead to two points, 58-56, with 5:01 left in the game. Michaela Dapprich made two free throws, and Kelsey Jacobs scored on a layup with 2:03 to play — and those were the game’s final points. Bradley’s only points in the final five minutes came at 2:25.

Jacobs and Jessica Diamond scored 14 points apiece for the Shockers, and Chynna Turner added 12. WSU (8-6, 2-0 MVC) won despite being outrebounded 41-29.

The win was the 100th career victory for WSU coach Jody Adams, who is in her sixth season. She has 76 wins with WSU.
