Recap: Wichita State vs. Northern Colorado

Wichita, KS (Sports Network) - Cleanthony Early posted 16 points as No. 24 Wichita State took an 80-54 win over Northern Colorado.

Nick Wiggins gave 14 points and Demetric Williams scored 12 points for the Shockers (9-0), who have won all but two of their games by double-digits.

"At the end of the day, we know what kind of coach that we got and we know that every day he is going to try and bring the best out of us," said Williams.

Derrick Barden had a game-high 19 points and Emmanuel Addo gave 10 points for the Bears (1-6), who have dropped six straight after opening the season with a win.

"This is a really good team and I'm really proud of our team and the way they battled," Northern Colorado coach B.J. Hill said. "I feel so much better right now about our team than I did three days ago. It's a huge difference."
