Old Dominion tops Indiana State 62-44 in Charleston
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Ahmad Caver had 22 points and six assists to lead Old Dominion to a 62-44 victory over Indiana State at the Charleston Classic on Friday.
Caver, last year's top scorer, shook off a poor 1-of-9 shooting performance against Temple here in the opening game to send the Monarchs (3-1) into the tournament's fifth-place game Sunday.
The Sycamores (1-2) came into the eight-team event off an earth-shaking 90-69 win at Indiana last week. But they followed up a loss to Auburn on Thursday by dropping their second straight and will try and avoid going 0-for-Charleston in Sunday's seventh-place game.
Old Dominion broke open a 35-30 game with an 18-5 run early in the second half.
Trey Porter added 16 points and Aaron Carver had a game-high 12 rebounds.
Tyreke Key was the Sycamores' only double-digit scorer with 10 points.
