Fresno State Tops ISU
FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Kevin Olekaibe scored 14 of his game-high 18 points in the second half as Fresno State rallied for a 55-47 nonconference victory over Illinois State on Friday night in both teams' season opener.

Olekaibe's three-point play with 1:06 remaining sealed the victory for Fresno State after the Redbirds had closed to within a point on the previous possession.

Kevin Foster added eight points and six rebounds for the Bulldogs and Jonathan Wills made four straight free throws in the final 30 seconds.

Nic Moore led Illinois State with 13 points, including three 3-pointers. Jackie Carmichael added 12 points and nine rebounds for a Redbirds team that shot just 30 percent from the field.
