After 2 free throws by Brett McDade, Crow hit three consecutive mid-range jumpers, then another 3-pointer that made it 71-52 Tulsa with 7:30 to play.
McDade and Sam Mitchell added 11 points each for the Golden Hurricane.
Green led the Muleriders with 14 points. SAU drops to 3-5, while Tulsa has been beaten just once in eight games.
