HONOLULU (AP) - Jake Odum banked in a 15-footer with eight-tenths of a second left in overtime to rally Indiana State to a 57-55 win over Miami Tuesday in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic.

Manny Arop and R.J. Mahurin scored 13 points apiece for the Sycamores (7-4), who trailed by as many as nine points and who shot just 27 percent from the field.

Arop made two free throws to tie it at 55 with 1:03 left in overtime, and after Miami's Kenny Kadji missed a shot, Indiana State got the ball and called timeout with 29.3 seconds left.

Odum received the ensuing inbounds pass and held the ball until 5 seconds remained. He started to his right, pump-faked near the free-throw line and hit what became the game-winning shot.

Kadji led the Hurricanes (8-3) with 13 points.
