Wichita State's Tekele Cotton Throws It Down Against Illinois State

Wichita State stayed perfect last night and Tekele Cotton had a highlight dunk against the Illinois State Redbirds.

#5 Wichita State moved to 20-0 last night with a 70-55 win over the Illinois State Redbirds in Normal, Illinois. Cleanthony Early was certainly the player of the game with a double-double stemming from 23 points and 10 rebounds, but it was the Shockers Tekele Cotton who stole the show with this huge dunk.

Cotton finished the night with 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists for the Shockers. Ron Baker was the third Shocker in double-figures with 15 points and 5 rebounds. Daishon Knight and Bobby Hunter were the only Redbirds in double-figures and combined for 22 points.

Wichita State will look to stay perfect with a visit to 11-8 Drake on Saturday. Their next three Missouri Valley games will come against teams that are a combined 6-15 in the conference. Illinois State will look to rebound with a trip to Terre Haute to take on the always tough Indiana State Sycamores.
