NEW ORLEANS -- Dexter Dennis' buzzer-beating 3-pointer lifted Wichita State to an 82-79 win over Tulane on Saturday night, leaving the Green Wave winless in American Athletic Conference play.
Dennis had been 0 for 4 from the field, all on 3-pointers, but he coolly took an inbound pass from Ricky Torres, turned and hit the winning 20-footer for the Shockers (17-13, 10-8).
Tulane battled back from a 37-28 halftime deficit, took the lead three minutes into the second half and led 60-52 with just under nine minutes remaining. Wichita State rallied and the lead changed hands five times.
The Shockers improved to 2-0 against the Green Wave for the season. Wichita State defeated Tulane 77-62 on Feb. 9.
