    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Manny Arop scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds in leading Indiana State to its third straight win, a 70-58 victory in a Missouri Valley Conference opener against Loyola of Chicago Wednesday.

    Arop made 7 of 15 attempts, including 3 of 6 3-pointers. Dawon Cummings added 10 points for the Sycamores (10-3), who didn't match the Ramblers' 50 percent shooting from the floor but equaled their number of field goals and had a big advantage at the free-throw line. The Sycamores made 15 of 23 from the line to the Ramblers' 3 of 7.

    The Sycamores also had a 36-25 rebounding advantage, including 16-5 on the offensive boards.

    Christian Thomas made 8 of 12 field-goal attempts for 19 points and Cody Johnson 6 of 8 for 15 points for the Ramblers (5-7), who played their first MVC game since coming over from the Horizon League where they spent 34 seasons.
