ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Dwayne Lathan and Myles Walker scored 16 points each as Indiana State beat Fairfield 72-66 in the third-place game at the Old Spice Classic on Sunday.

Jake Odum, Jordan Printy and R.J. Mahurin added 10 points apiece for Indiana State (6-1), which is off to its best start since 2005-06 when the Sycamores opened the season by winning eight games in a row. Odum also had 12 assists.

Fairfield (3-4) got 21 points from Rakim Sanders, who averaged 19 points in the Stags' first two tournament games.
