DOVER, Del. (AP) - Tyshawn Bell scored 21 points and Delaware State got off to a fast start, rolling past Savannah State 79-59 Monday night.

The Hornets (6-17, 2-8) roared to a 13-point lead at intermission, 40-27.

Bell was efficient on offense, hitting 7 of 9 from the field, 2 for 2 from long range and 5 for 5 from the line. DeAndre Haywood and Kendall Gray contributed 13 and 12 points, respectively. The Hornets shot 26 of 41 from the field (63.4 percent)

Jyles Smith led Savannah State (8-16, 6-4) with 13 points. The Tigers were 22 of 50 from the field (44 percent).
