SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Pendarvis Williams had 16 points as Norfolk State topped Savannah State 55-45 in each team's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener Saturday night.
Williams connected on 6 of 11 from the field. Jamel Fuentes was the only other Spartan in double figures with 11 points.
Savannah State led 28-25 at halftime, but shot just 22.6 percent (7 of 31) from the field in the second half. Norfolk State came out of halftime with a 7-2 scoring run, and used an 8-3 run to take a 52-42 lead with 1:07 left on Rob Johnson's free-throw make.
Norfolk State hit 14 of 21 from the foul line in the second half and 17 of 26 for the game.
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.
