Five years ago, Wichita State handed the UNI Panthers their worst home loss at the McLeod Center. The Shockers did it again Wednesday night (Jan. 20, 2016).

Wichita State (13-5 overall, 7-0 MVC) led from start to finish and posted a 74-55 victory over the Panthers. The 19-point win margin was the largest by a visiting team at the McLeod Center. The previous standard was an 18-point victory by the Shockers in 2011.

Ron Baker scored a game-high 21 points for Wichita State and Markis McDuffie added 15 points off the bench. The Shockers shot 56.5 percent from the field.

UNI (10-10 overall, 2-5 MVC) had 14 points from Matt Bohannon, Wes Washpun and Bennett Koch. The Panthers shot 32.7 percent from field - the second straight game they shot less than 40 percent from the floor.

Wichita State used a 7-0 to take a 22-12 lead with 5:25 left in the first half. The Panthers closed to within 27-22 on a 3-pointer from Bohannon with 1:37 left before intermission. But the Shockers finished the half on a 5-0 run capped by Baker's half-court buzzer-beater to take a 34-22 lead into the break.

UNI trimmed the lead to 36-32 with 16:09 remaining in the game on a 3-pointer by Jeremy Morgan. But a 10-2 Wichita State run put the visitors on top 46-34 with 13:32 left in the contest.

The Panthers pulled to within 46-40 with 12:19 on the clock on a 3-pointer from Bohannon. However, UNI got three consecutive stops on the defensive end but could not convert points on the offensive end. Baker then scored on a layup with 9:22 to go, giving Wichita State a 48-40 advantage

UNI would climb back to within six at 58-52 after a trio of free throws from Bohannon with 4:24 left in the game, but the Panthers would get no closer.

UP NEXT: The Panthers travel to Illinois State on Saturday for a 3 p.m. game at Redbird Arena.
