The Tulsa Golden Hurricane continued its destruction of the Canadian college basketball circuit Friday with a 105-61 blowout of Seneca College.

The Hurricane shot 53 percent, had eight players score in double-figures and out-rebounded Seneca 61-34. Plain and simple, this was a complete mismatch.

Although this game was more of a show than a real contest, TU coach Danny Manning still found some things he'd like to see his Hurricane improve on.

"We have to a better job of taking care of the basketball," said Manning. "We had way too many turnovers, and we didn't have enough assists in ratio to those turnovers. We had 25 turnovers and 21 assists. We have to get better in that category. We did okay on the glass, but we still have to make sure we put our bodies on people and go get the basketball."

Overall though, Manning was happy with Tulsa's performance.

"I think the guys are starting to understand what we're looking for," Manning said. "Each game their understanding and command of the offensive and defensive schemes is getting better."
