Dec 10, 2009 - 3:00 AM By JEFF LATZKE AP Sports Writer

NORMAN, Okla.(AP) -- Tony Crocker scored 29 of his career-high 33 points in the first half to push Oklahoma to a commanding lead, and the Sooners beat Centenary 86-62 Wednesday night.

Crocker also had 13 rebounds and a career-high three blocks, and freshman Tiny Gallon added 16 points and 15 rebounds for his fourth double-double.

The Sooners (6-3) completed a perfect three-game home stand after a disappointing trip to the Great Alaska Shootout that featured back-to-back losses to San Diego and Houston and resulted in their fall from the Top 25.

David Perez had 20 points and Maxx Nakwaasah scored 13 to lead Centenary (4-4), which plays six of seven games on the road after completing a five-game homestand.
