Tulsa 140, Prairie View 51
TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Shea Seals led seven double-figure scorers with 21 points as Tulsa set two school records Sunday in a 140-51 victory over Prairie View A&M.
The Golden Hurricane (4-0) scored the first 15 points of the game and led 41-9 before the Panthers (3-6) had their only flurry of the game, three straight baskets.
The school record for most points was set in a 128-63 victory over Houston Baptist in November 1993 and that had also been the Golden Hurricane’s largest margin of victory.
The NCAA Division I record for margin of victory was Southern University’s 154-57 win over Patten in November 1993.
Tulsa was coming off road wins over Western Kentucky and Temple, as well as a week off for final exams. There was no chance of a letdown against the Panthers, who were smaller, less athletic and have yet to beat an NCAA team this year.
Jonnie Gendron scored 16 points and Ray Poindexter, one of two 6-foot-11 players Tulsa had in its starting lineup, scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half.
Derick Malone led Prairie View with 21 points. The Panthers missed their first five shots and had five turnovers before they scored. Tulsa tied a school record by forcing 37 turnovers.
Tulsa led 59-19 at halftime and went over 100 points with just over 10 minutes left.
