Jane Asinde got her first start in the NCAA Division I as her Wichita State Shockers hosted Prairie View A&M Panthers and made it count.

The forward scored an efficient season and team-high 17 points in three quarters as Shockers beat the Panthers, 86-71, on Tuesday night.

The Ugandan star also grabbed a season and game-high 11 rebounds and handed out a couple of assists.

After an all square first quarter in which Asinde scored 6 of Wichita’s 17 points, Shockers pulled away in the second quarter with defensive tenacity that suffocated the Panthers.

She score 5 and 6 points in the second and third quarter respectively but did not step on the floor in the fourth.
