WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -

Landry Shamet scored 16 points in just 23 minutes as No. 22 Wichita State cruised to a 95-74 win over UConn on Saturday night.

The Shockers (19-5, 9-3 American Athletic Conference) had 17 assists and just two turnovers while building a 55-33 halftime lead and were never threatened after that.

Conner Frankamp scored 14 points for Wichita State, Shaquille Morris had 12 and Darral Willis added 10 as the Shockers shot 52.4 percent from the floor.

Jalen Adams and Christian Vital each had 22 points for UConn (12-13, 5-7 American). Adams and Vital each played 35 minutes. No Shocker played more than 23.

The Huskies had allowed just 67.9 points per game in their first 11 conference contests. Wichita State outrebounded UConn 40-24 and was 14 of 28 from the 3-point line.

UConn's Terry Larrier, who scored 18 points against Wichita State in the season's first meeting, was 0 of 4 from the floor and did not score.

BIG PICTURE:

UConn: With games at Cincinnati and Houston still on the schedule, the Huskies have a legitimate chance to finish below .500.

Wichita State: The Shockers looked like a team with high preseason expectations and likely avoided falling out the Top 25.

UP NEXT

UConn: The Huskies host Tulsa on Thursday.

Wichita State: The Shockers host Temple on Thursday.
