The Bearkats (22-6, 14-1 Southland Conference) have secured the top seed for next week's conference tournament. Allmond hit five 3-pointers and Clavell was 8-for-10 from the field for Sam Houston State, which has won three consecutive games.
Sam Houston State shot 53.8 percent from the field (21 of 39) in the first half to take a 57-35 lead. The Bearkats used a 15-3 run to take a 42-22 lead on Josten Crow's 3-pointer with 7:26 remaining.
Crow hit another 3 and Clavell made a layup for a 52-25 lead with 4:59 to play.
Crow scored 15 points and Preston Brown added 13 for Sam Houston State.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
