Wichita State gets 74-63 win over DePaul in Cancun

Posted: Updated:

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - Demetric Williams came off the bench to score a career-high 16 points, helping Wichita State beat DePaul 74-63 on Tuesday in the Cancun Challenge semifinals.

Williams, a senior, was just 5 of 13 from the field but made two 3-pointers and added four steals. Malcolm Armstead also scored 16 for the Shockers (5-0), who will face the winner of the Iowa-Western Kentucky game, which tipped off later Tuesday, in Wednesday's Riviera Division final.

Brandon Young led the Blue Demons (2-2) with 19 points and five assists, and Moses Morgan added 15 points off the bench. DePaul shot just 31% from the field.

Wichita State wasn't much better, hitting 43% of its shots and 56% of its free throws. But the Shockers never trailed, leading by as many as 13 in the second half.

The game was the first meeting between the schools since 1988.
