Indiana State tops Southern Illinois 66-65

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Jake Odum's layup with 19 seconds to play helped Indiana State to a 66-65 win over Southern Illinois on Saturday.

RJ Mahurin had 16 points, going 5 for 7 from 3-point range, to lead the Sycamores (16-8, 9-4 Missouri Valley), who beat MVC-leading No. 16 Creighton earlier in the week.

Odum finished with 13 points, five assists and four steals, and Khristian Smith scored 12 points.

Southern Illinois led 13-1 and Indiana State didn't get its first field goal until Smith scored with 15:52 before halftime. But the Sycamores pulled even at 24.

Jalen Pendleton led all scorers with 17 points for the Salukis (9-15, 2-11). His 3-point play with 1:09 remaining gave SIU a 65-64 lead, but he missed a shot at the end that would have been the winner.

Desmar Jackson scored 16 points, Dantiel Daniels scored 12 and Anthony Beane Jr. had 10 points before fouling out.
