ST. LOUIS -- Jake Odum scored 18 points as second-seeded Indiana State knocked off No. 10 seed Loyola of Chicago 75-62 in a Missouri Valley Conference quarterfinal on Friday.

Indiana State (21-9) shot 53 percent from the floor and made five 3-pointers. Justin Gant scored 14 points with four assists for the Sycamores and Devonte Brown added 12 points.

Jeff White led Loyola (10-21) with 13 points, the only Rambler in double figures.

Odum scored the last nine points of the first half for Indiana State as it took a 26-22 lead into the break.

A 6-0 run at the start of the second half pushed the Sycamore lead to 10 and Loyola coach Porter Moser called timeout. The Ramblers scored the next two buckets to cut the lead to six, but that's as close as they got as Indiana State ran its lead as high as 20 down the stretch.
