EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Drew Crawford scored 18 points and Northwestern hit a dozen 3-pointers Tuesday night as Northwestern beat Delaware State 69-50.

Crawford's three first-half 3s helped calm a sloppy offense as Northwestern (4-0) managed a double-digit lead throughout most of the second half. The Hornets briefly cut the deficit to eight points with under 10 minutes to play, but couldn't keep the pressure on the Wildcats.

Dave Sobolewski had 14 points for Northwestern, and freshman Alex Olah added 10 points, six rebounds and three steals. The 7-footer had his way on the inside as Delaware State had no answer for his size.

Reggie Hearn, Northwestern's top scorer in its first three games, had 12 points and three 3-pointers.

Tahj Tate led the Hornets (3-2) with 23 points. Delaware State has lost consecutive games after winning its first three.
