Indiana State (17-12, 9-8) got 13 points from Jake Odum, 12 from RJ Mahurin and 10 from Dawon Cummings. The Sycamores, who have a pair of wins this season over Top-25 programs (Wichita State and Creighton) and had been 7-1 at home in conference play, have lost four of their last five games.

Drake took control of the game with 11 straight points to close the first half, giving it a 27-21 lead at the break. Carter extended the margin to eight points with a layup to start the second half and the Bulldogs stretched the lead to as many as 15 points down the stretch.
