DURHAM, N.C. -- Emanuel Chapman dished out 10 assists and five North Carolina Central players scored in double figures as the Eagles rolled to a 94-40, nonconference victory over National Christian College Athletic Association member Toccoa Falls Tuesday night.
Chapman, who also pulled down six rebounds, now has 252 assists in his career, moving him into the top 10 in Eagles' history.
North Carolina Central dominated the first half, building a 59-22 halftime lead on 24-of-31 shooting (77.4 percent).
The Eagles scored 48 points off 28 turnovers.
Toccoa Falls (2-5) tried mounting a second-half comeback from beyond the arc, but the attempt fizzled as the team went 0 for 14 on 3-point tries after the intermission.
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.
