No. 4 Oklahoma blows out Coppin St, 93-62

NORMAN, Okla. (AP)—Tony Crocker scored 20 points to lead No. 4 Oklahoma to a 93-62 victory over Coppin State on Saturday.

Crocker hit five 3-pointers, including four in the opening half when the Sooners (13-1) raced out to leads of 20-6 and 34-13 over the Eagles.

Tywain McKee scored 20 points to lead Coppin State (2-11).

The Sooners took a 45-23 lead at the break behind 15 points from Crocker and 12 from Blake Griffin, who finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for his 11th double-double of the season.

Coming off of its first loss of the season against Arkansas on Tuesday, Oklahoma shot 54 percent from the field and outrebounded Coppin State 48-29.

Willie Warren added 14 points for the Sooners, Omar Leary had 11 and Ray Willis scored 10.

Coppin State, which shot 36 percent from the field, struggled to match the Sooners’ quickness and muscle at both ends of the floor.

Oklahoma improved to 13-0 all-time against Coppin State, which is known for playing a rigorous nonconference schedule under longtime coach Fang Mitchell.

Crocker, a junior guard, got the Sooners started with his first 3-pointer just 16 seconds into the game. That sparked an 11-2 run, and when he hit his third 3-pointer at the 12:25 mark, Oklahoma led 23-9.

The Eagles used a 10-4 run to make it 38-23 with just over three minutes left in the half, but that was as close as they would get, as the Sooners led by as many as 33 in the second half.
