Malcolm Armstead had 12 points and Cleanthony Early 11 for the Shockers (21-5, 10-4), who moved a game in front of Creighton and Indiana State in the MVC standings.

Ben Simons scored 15 points and Richard Carter 11 for the Bulldogs (11-14, 5-9), who were outrebounded 45-29.

Drake fought back from a double-digit halftime deficit to trail 55-47 with 6:01 remaining, but Armstead drilled a 3-pointer, Tekele Cotton hit a jumper and VanVleet converted a three-point play to double the margin. The Bulldogs got no closer than 14 points the rest of the way.

Wichita State took a 30-16 lead into the break after outscoring Drake 18-2 in the last 9:37 of the first half.
