TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker each scored 21 points and No. 14 Wichita State finished with a 26-6 run to shake free of pesky Tulsa for a 77-54 win Wednesday night.

Leading 51-48 after an inside basket by Tulsa's James Woodard, Wichita State scored the next eight points to force a Golden Hurricane timeout with 8:35 left in the contest.

The victory kept Wichita State (5-0) unbeaten on the season while Tulsa (0-3) is still looking for its first victory.

Tulsa pulled to 10 points on a 3-pointer by Pat Swilling with 5:39 to play, but VanVleet and Baker took over the game from there. VanVleet notched a 3-pointer on Wichita State's next possession and Baker capped off the Shockers' next two trips down the court with a jumper and a 3-pointer to boost Wichita State's advantage to 71-53 with 3:26 remaining.

Swilling finished with 12 points, Tulsa's only scorer in double-digits.
