Late shot in OT beats Miami

RECOMMENDED READING


HONOLULU — Jake Odum banked in a 15-footer with 0.8 seconds left in overtime to give Indiana State a 57-55 win over Miami in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic on Tuesday night.

The Sycamores (7-4) trailed by as many as nine in the second half and shot 27 percent from the field for the game, the worst by a winning team this season, according to ESPN Stats and Info.

Miami (8-3) led 49-47 in regulation, but Rion Brown missed two free throws with 32.8 seconds left for UM. On the ensuing possession, Brown fouled R.J. Mahurin, whose two free throws tied it with 16.6 seconds left.

Miami was 11-of-21 on free throws, 0-for-15 on 3-pointers.

"We just struggled all game long … and still had a chance to win," coach Jim Larranaga said. "You don't normally produce those kinds of numbers."

No. 3 Arizona 68, No. 17 San Diego St. 67: Mark Lyons made two free throws with 13.1 seconds left, then Nick Johnson blocked a layup in the final seconds of the Diamond Head Classic. The Wildcats are 12-0 for the first time since 1988. The Aztecs (11-2) led 67-66 after Jamaal Franklin made one of two free throws with 31.4 seconds left.

Football: Auburn gets JUCO star from TBT

Former Tampa Bay Tech standout Devonte Danzey, whom 247sports.com ranks as the top junior college guard in the nation, signed a letter of intent with Auburn.

Danzey, a Times All-Suncoast honorable mention as a senior in 2010, spent this season at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College and will have three seasons of eligibility.

More Auburn: Melvin Smith, one of Mississippi State's top recruiters, was hired as cornerbacks coach by new coach Gus Malzahn.

Syracuse: Tailback Adonis Ameen-Moore and tight end Max Beaulieu were suspended for Saturday's Pinstripe Bowl for an undisclosed rules violation. Ameen-Moore scored six touchdowns while used primarily in short-yardage situations. Beaulieu played just one game.

Texas Tech: Starting tight end Jace Amaro, who has missed the past six games with an undisclosed injury, will play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas against Minnesota.

Late Monday: SMU returned two interceptions for touchdowns (tying the Division I-A season record of eight set by Southern Miss last season) and recorded seven sacks, one for a safety, in beating Fresno State 43-10 in the Hawaii Bowl. Margus Hunt, a 6-foot-8 senior defensive end from Estonia with an 82-inch wing span, got the safety and forced two fumbles against a Bulldogs offense that had averaged 47.2 points during a five-game win streak.
