Willis’ MVC debut is record-setting in Shocker win

Wichita State beat Indiana State for the ninth consecutive time and opened the Missouri Valley portion of its 2016-17 schedule successfully.

The Shockers won 80-72 on the road marking also a nine-game winning streak in Terre Haute, Ind.

Freshman Darral Willis led the way with a game-high 25 points and 10 rebounds to record a double-double. It is a program best in scoring for a Shocker in his MVC debut.

Markis McDuffie also topped the 20-point plateau in the victory, putting in 22 on the night. The last time Shocker teammates each went for 20 in a game against an MVC foe also came against Indiana State. In the 2014 MVC Tournament Championship, Fred VanVleet scored 22, while Tekele Cotton notched 20 points.

WSU rings in the new year at home, hosting Bradley on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017, at 1 p.m. in the Koch Arena.
