CLEVELAND -- Marlin Mason led five Cleveland State players in double digits with 17 points as the Vikings rolled over Old Dominion 67-55 Saturday in a nonconference affair.
Cleveland State (3-1) used a 15-1 second-half run to overcome a five-point halftime deficit. Charlie Lee started the run with a 3-pointer, and Tim Kamczyc's jumper with 16:56 left put the Vikings ahead 36-35.
Old Dominion (1-3) led for most of the first half, snapping a 10-all tie with 12:10 left in the first with a 9-0 run. The Monarchs led 30-25 at halftime and 34-27 with 18:55 to play before the Vikings' go-ahead run.
Nine different players scored for Old Dominion, with Dimitrie Batten and Keenan Palmore tying with a team-high nine points.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
