Wichita State Ends Longest Home Win Streak in the Nation

No. 19 Wichita State(21-5, 11-3) upset conference rival No. 5 Cincinnati(23-4, 12-2), winning 76-72, and thus ending their NCAA-leading 39-game home win streak. Guard Landry Shamet scored 19 points with five assists and four rebounds to lead the Shockers to their first road win against a top-five team since 1964.

Jaron Cumberland had a team-high 18 points, with Cane Broome and Jacob Evans III both contributing 16 points in the loss. This marked the second loss to an American Athletic Conference (AAC) team this week for the Bearcats.

This is the 23rd home loss suffered by a top ten ranked team this NCAA season. No team is safe come the start of March Madness.
