MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Cameron Oluyitan scored 15 points and led four players into double figure scoring as Southern Utah walloped Idaho, 73-45 in a Big Sky Conference battle Monday night.
The Thunderbirds built a 19-point lead by intermission and padded it in the second half.
Oluyitan hit 6 of 11 shots from the field, including 2 of 5 from long range for Southern Utah (12-7, 5-3). Andre Adams was 7 of 8 from the field for 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Maizen Fausett added 13 points and 8 boards and Dre Marin contributed 11 points.
"We wanted to get back to defending,” SUU coach Todd Simon said. “We had a bad taste in our mouths after Saturday’s result, and I thought we came out with a lot of purpose so that was good."
Trevon Allen scored 12 points to lead the Vandals (5-14, 1-7), who now have lost five straight and eight of their last nine. Jack Wilson added 10 points and grabbed eight boards.
