TULSA, Okla. (AP) — J’Wan Roberts scored 15 points, Tramon Mark and Emanuel Sharp added 14 each, and No. 3 Houston routed Tulsa 89-50 in the American Athletic Conference opener for both teams. The Cougars missed five of their first seven shots as Tulsa took an early 8-5 lead, but were deadly thereafter and finished the game shooting 59%. Mark left the game with 17:51 remaining because of an apparent leg injury and did not return. Bryant Selebangue led Tulsa with 13 points. Houston used a couple of big runs to pull away to a 43-26 halftime advantage, then opened the second half with a 12-2 burst.
