METRO ROUNDUP: Odum shines in Portsmouth Invitational

PORTSMOUTH, VA. — Former Indiana State guard Jake Odum had a productive first night at the Portsmouth Invitational late Thursday.

The Terre Haute native scored 16 points, had six assists and three steals for the Portsmouth Partnership team in its 88-81 victory over Cherry Bekaert.

Odum converted 7 of 10 from the field and had no turnovers. He started for Portsmouth Partnership and played 28 minutes.

Odum is the first ISU player to play in the Portsmouth Invitational — considered to be one of the prep events for the NBA Draft — since David Moss took part in 2006.

Portsmouth Partnership also played late Friday against Sales Systems, Ltd. in a tournament semifinal, but the game ended after the Tribune-Star’s deadline. Portsmouth Partnership will play today at either 6 p.m. in the third place contest or at 8 p.m. in the championship game.


• ISU splits —  Freshman Erika Crissman hit her first career home run and junior Yvette Alvarez allowed just one earned run as Indiana State (24-21, 6-12 MVC) split a doubleheader with Bradley (20-25, 11-8 MVC) on Friday at Price Field.

The Braves came out firing in the first game and never looked back as they defeated the Sycamores 13-3 in five innings.

Bradley started strong again in the second game, but ISU had an answer to take a 2-1 victory.

In the top of the first inning, the Braves led off with a single that came around to score to take a 1-0 lead.

The Sycamores answered the Braves call as Morgan Allee led off the bottom of the first with a single before stealing her conference leading 28th base. Allee then advanced to third on a bunt single by freshman Rylee Holland to put runners on the corners. The Sycamores then jumped on the scoreboard as Crissman hit an RBI groundout to second base to score Allee and tie the game 1-1.

Alvarez then held the Braves at bay for the majority of the remainder of the game and the Sycamores took their first lead off the day in the bottom of the fourth when Crissman crushed her first career home run to right-center field to give the Sycamores the edge.

Crissman finished the game 2-3 with two RBI while Alvarez pitched a complete game, allowing just five hits and one earned run with six strikeouts.

The rubber game of the series is today at noon.

Mascari used a great second half finish to nearly catch Gray who led by a much as 150 meters during the race. Mascari hit around 14:49 for the forst 5,000 meters and came back in about 14:21.

“The race felt pretty easy up until the last 400 meters,” Mascari said. “The race went out pretty conservative, but I had a huge negative split the second half of the race. I’m pretty happy about that, but wish I would’ve gone out faster.”

Junior Tristan Selby ran the third fastest 10k in school history, running 29:45.83 to take fourth place.
