WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Kyle Wilson scored a career-high 25 points Monday night, including two clutch free throws with seven seconds to play, as Wichita State beat Creighton 62-59.
The Shockers (12-6, 3-4 Missouri Valley Conference) have won consecutive games for the first time since starting the season 9-0 and rising as high as No. 8 in the polls.
With the Shockers clinging to a 60-59 lead, Wilson made both ends of a one-and-one, then Wichita State's P.J. Couisnard blocked Nate Funk's 3-point try at the buzzer.
Funk scored 16 points to lead Creighton (11-6, 5-2).
The Shockers led 32-30 at halftime and built the lead to as many as eight points early in the second half. But Wichita State couldn't shake the Bluejays, who trailed 57-56 after Anthony Tolliver's dunk with 2:44 to play.
Wichita State built the lead to 60-56 on free throws, but Couisnard fouled Funk on a 3-point shot with 20 seconds to play. He made just one free throw, then hit a jumper with 11 seconds remaining to pull the Blue Jays to within one.
Wilson made 11-of-16 shots, including all three 3-point attempts. Sean Ogirri was the only other Wichita State player in double figures with 15 points.
