Recap: Belmont vs. Indiana State

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - J.J. Mann finished with 23 points as the Belmont Bruins stormed back from a double-digit deficit to down the Indiana State Sycamores, 96-95, in a non-conference thriller at the Curb Events Center.

Drew Windler scored 17 points and seven rebounds in 19 minutes for Belmont (2-1). Reece Chamberlain tallied 16 points, seven boards and seven assists while Craig Bradshaw added 11 points. Blake Jenkins and Chad Lang added 10 points apiece to help the Bruins improve to 39-1 at home over their past 40 outings.

Khristian Smith led ISU (1-1) with career-high 28 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field. Jake Odum also made a significant impact with 23 points, six rebounds and five assists while Dawon Cummings scored 12 points in the Sycamores' first loss of the season.

ISU dominated the opening 20 minutes as it knocked down 7-of-12 attempts from beyond the arc and assisted nine of its 16 made field goals to take a 49-33 lead into halftime. The Bruins fell behind despite shooting an even 50 percent from the floor in the first half.

Belmont rallied back in the second stanza as it converted 65.5 percent of its field goal tries including 5-of-10 from 3-point range. The Sycamores could not maintain their momentum and went just 2-of-10 from beyond the arc after the intermission. Windler sank a pair of free-throw attempts with 15 seconds remaining to give the Bruins a 96-92 lead before Smith made a 3-point shot to bring the visitors within a single point. After Cummins forced a jump ball to give ISU possession with just over five seconds remaining, Odum drove the lane and fell to the ground as time expired.

The Bruins finished the contest with a 32-25 edge in the rebounding battle. The Sycamores' reserves outscored Belmont's bench, 43-19.
