    Kenny Harris had 15 points for the Purple Aces (7-6, 2-1), but missed the second of two free throws in the final seconds that would have forced overtime.

    Stutz was 10 for 12 from the field and made all five of his free throws. Wichita State scored 40 points in the paint to 14 for the Purple Aces, but Evansville stayed in it by scoring 24 points off of 16 Shockers turnovers.
