HONOLULU, Hawaii — The University of Miami was defeated Indiana State, 57-55 in overtime, on Dec. 25 in the third place game of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.

Trey McKinney Jones grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds for the Canes.
Jake ISU’s Jake Odum banked in a 15-footer with eight-tenths of a second left in overtime to rally Indiana State to the win. Indiana State trailed by as many as nine points and 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.
