CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) Cameron Oluyitan tossed in 21 points and Andre Adams added 17 points and nine rebounds to guide Southern Utah to a 76-71 victory over Sacramento State on Saturday.

Oluyitan sank 7 of 9 shots, including all three of his 3-point tries, for the Thunderbirds (9-7, 4-3 Big Sky Conference), who shot 53.5 percent from the floor and buried 6 of 11 from behind the arc. Adams hit 5 of 7 shots, all seven of his free throws, and added three assists. Jacob Calloway pitched in with 15 points and six boards and Brandon Better scored 12.

Oluyitan hit two free throws before Joshua Patton's dunk again pulled the Hornets within three points. Graves missed a 3 with a chance to tie with 19 seconds left and Calloway sank two free throws eight seconds later to preserve the win.
