Terre Haute, IN (Sports Network) - Jake Odum scored a game-high 22 points and
dished out five assists to lead Indiana State to a 76-57 drubbing of 16th-
ranked Creighton at Hulman Center.
Odum, who finished 7-of-10 from field goal range, has reached double digits in
four straight games. Manny Arop finished with 17 points and seven rebounds and
RJ Mahurin added 13 points for the Sycamores (15-8, 8-8 MVC), winners in three
of their last four.
Indiana State took down then 15th-ranked Wichita State on Jan. 29, but fell to
Drake in overtime on Feb. 2.
Doug McDermott, the Bluejays' leading scorer, struggled from the field all
night. The 2012 MVC Player of the Year converted on just 3-of-10 field goal
attempts and finished with just eight points, his lowest scoring output since
posting just five points on Nov. 14.
Avery Dingman led all Creighton (20-4, 9-3) scores with 13 points while
Gregory Echenique, Grant Gibbs and Nevin Johnson tallied eight points apiece
in the setback.
