EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Alex Olah scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Northwestern snapped a three-game losing streak by beating Mississippi Valley State 101-49 on Sunday.

Nathan Taphorn had 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting while Bryant McIntosh and Tre Demps had 15 points apiece for the Wildcats, who were playing without senior guard JerShon Cobb (right foot) but still eased to their highest point total and most lopsided victory of the season.

Northwestern (6-3) dominated play for most of the night — placing five players in double figures — and shot 57.4 percent, including 11 of 24 from beyond the arc, after dropping decisions to Northern Iowa, Georgia Tech and Butler.

Cobb averaged 12.2 points last season but has struggled so far, contributing only 5.1 through eight games. He wore a large gray walking boot on his right leg during the game.

Latrell Love led MVSU (1-7) with 15 points.
