Chynna Turner's 3-pointer from the left corner with 15:26 remaining in the second half capped a 9-2 Wichita State run allowing the Shockers to break free of the visitors from Grambling, La.

Jazimen Gordon, a senior from West Memphis, Ark., also reached the 800-point mark Tuesday night on the Shockers first basket of the second half.

Jessica Diamond scored a team-high 19 points and added six rebounds to help snap the Shocker's three-game losing streak. Sophomore Kelsey Jacobs had career-highs with 10 points and three blocks for WSU.
