TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) – Darius Carter had 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 11 Wichita State to a 63-53 win over Indiana State on Wednesday night.

Fred VanVleet added 15 points while Tekele Cotton scored 12 in a win that saw Wichita State score 30 points in the paint.

The Shockers (26-3, 16-1 Missouri Valley) won their seventh straight game inside the Hulman Center, making it the second longest streak in school history against an opponent at its own arena. It was the 25th victory in the last 29 meetings against the Sycamores.

Indiana State (14-15, 10-7) led for nearly 12 minutes of the first half but a 19-9 run by the Shockers put them up 28-24 at halftime. They never looked back from there.

The Sycamores were led by Khristian Smith with 20 points.
