Make some stops

Tulsa made 10 of 22 shots in the first and took 15 free throws, a product of its drives to the basket. Six of those baskets came on layups. Wichita State did a better job closing off the lane in the second half, allowing three layups.

“We maintained our defensive discipline to cut down those driving lanes,” WSU coach Gregg Marshall said. “These guys were so tough, especially on the glass.”

Without those easy baskets, Tulsa’s shooting slumped from 45.5 percent in the first half to 33.3 percent in the second.

“They made their runs and we couldn’t fire back,” Tulsa guard Pat Swilling said. “They were kind of sinking in the lane a little bit. I still think we could have done a better job driving to the hole.”

The Shockers, despite foul trouble, outrebounded Tulsa 43-29 and 22-12 in the second half.

“Everybody knows Wichita State is a hard-nosed, tough team,” Tulsa coach Danny Manning said. “They get after it, and there was a stretch in the second half where they did those things. We didn’t.”

Worth noting

WSU won its sixth in a row, matching the its longest streak in the series (1987-89). The Shockers lead the series 63-60.… The teams combined to commit 43 fouls and shoot 54 free throws.… WSU is 5-0 for the second straight season.
