BALTIMORE -- Robert Olson scored 22 points Saturday night to lead Loyola (Md.) to a 79-57 victory over Mount St. Mary's.
The 168th meeting between the two teams was over early. Olson scored 14 of his game-high 22 in the first half as the Greyhounds raced to a 40-18 halftime lead. Loyola (9-3) shot 61.9 percent from the floor in the first half, hitting 13 of 21 shots.
Meanwhile, the Mountaineers (4-4) were just 7 for 29 from the field before the break (24.1 percent). They missed nine of their first 10 3-point attempts.
Kristijan Krajina led Mount St. Mary's with 14 points.
Loyola finished 27 of 55 from the field (55.1 percent). The Mountaineers were just 22 of 65 (33.8 percent).
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.
