Kevin C. Cox

Howard remains winless after getting blown out by Wichita State, 69-50, on Saturday.

The Howard Bison are still winless after being blown out by the Wichita St. Shockers, 69-50, on Saturday at Charles Koch Arena.

Howard kept the game close until the 7:01 mark of the first half, but a 21-0 run by the Shockers at the end of the half put the game out of reach early.

The Bison rallied in the second half and outscored the Shockers 36-32, but it wasn't enough to rebound from an early deficit. Ultimately, it was turnovers cost Howard, as they turned the ball over a jaw-dropping 26 times.

Forward Carl Hall and guard Demetric Williams led a balanced attack for Wichita St., scoring 11 points and grabbing six rebounds apiece. Guards Ron Baker and Evan Wessel added nine points apiece, and sophomore forward Jake White added eight points for the Shockers.

Senior forward Mike Phillips led all Bison scorers with 12 points, and Prince Okoroh added 10 points, seven rebounds and four steals.

Howard will take on the Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs on Nov. 20 at Moon Palace Resort. Tipoff is slated for 4 p.m. ET.
