The fans appreciated the effort, and both coaches pointed to that situation and ones like it after No. 22 Wichita State cruised past UConn 95-74 on Saturday.

"It's disrespectful to the program", said sophomore Christian Vital, who had 22 points and six rebounds.

Marshall has lost just 21 campus home games in 11 seasons at WSU for an.877 winning percentage.

Rangie Bassard led the Lady Shockers with 20 points.

"Our defense was just disgusting today", coach Kevin Ollie said. "We didn't get out on shooters, allowed wide-open cuts, gave up offensive rebounds". That's just not hitting somebody in the chest, and letting them run free. We can come up with all kind of ways that they scored, but at the end of the day, it comes down us guarding, us believing in each other and making the rotations that we go over every day. "And trusting with blind faith that if I get beat, somebody is going to be there for me". UConn (12-13, 5-7 American) never threatened after that and was outrebounded 40-24.

It is hard to be surprised by the degree of domination from the UConn Huskies in women's college basketball anymore. And then when they do miss, they get the rebound.

UConn: With games at Cincinnati and Houston still on the schedule, the Huskies have a legitimate chance to finish below.500. That's all barring a surprising turnaround, and UConn hasn't offered many surprises this season.

Wichita State spread the ball and the scoring around, getting 24 assists on 33 baskets, shooting 52.4 percent.

The Lady Huskies shot 71 percent and crushed Wichita State 124-43. "It is a thing to marvel at sometimes they way our guys move it". "That's a great team here, and they do it as a team, there are no individuals. We have to show more toughness". A senior, Frankamp went a combined 1 of 12 from the 3-point line in the previous three games. Austin Reaves' made one to extend Wichita State's lead to 21-7, then 3s by Shamet, Reaves and Willis stretched it out to 49-27 with 3:31 to play in the half.

The Shockers were 9-of-18 from deep in the first half to build a 55-33 lead at the intermission. Adams and Vital each played 35 minutes.
