TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- Indiana State picked the perfect night to play the perfect game.
The defense smothered Doug McDermott, shut down one of the nation's highest-scoring teams and made it look easier than anybody could have anticipated.
Jake Odum finished with 22 points, five assists and four steals Wednesday night, leading the unranked Sycamores to a stunning 76-57 win over No. 16 Creighton in a game that wasn't even that close.
"I don't know if we can play any better," Indiana State coach Greg Lansing said. "We played well at both ends of the floor. I know Creighton didn't play very well, but our guys followed the game plan perfectly and we really gave them a run, and I still think that's one of the best teams in the country."
