Drake downs Indiana State, wins 3rd in row

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Richard Carter scored 15 points and Seth VanDeest had 14 as Drake won its third straight game, defeating Indiana State 67-56 on Wednesday night.

Jordan Clarke added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs (14-15, 7-10 Missouri Valley), and Ben Simons had 10 points and seven rebounds.

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.
