TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Rodney Cooper had 17 points and eight rebounds to lead Alabama to a 75-47 victory over Lamar on Tuesday night.

The Crimson Tide (6-0) held its second straight opponent to fewer than 50 points and took control with a 25-7 run starting early in the second half.

Lamar coach Pat Knight was ejected after getting called for two technicals protesting a non-call with 16:56 left and the Cardinals (1-6) facing a 38-29 deficit. Assistant coaches held him back from storming toward the officials.

The Tide played without ailing leading scorer Trevor Releford, who has a stomach virus, and guard Andrew Steele, who has a groin injury.

Retin Obasohan added 13 points for Alabama while Levi Randolph and Dakota Slaughter each had 10 points. Stan Brown led Lamar with 14 points and nine rebounds while Rhon Mitchell scored 10.
