Poor Late Game Execution Dooms Hoosiers

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Patrick McCaw scored 20 points and UNLV hung on through the frantic final seconds for a 72-69 victory over No. 13 Indiana on Wednesday in the fifth-place game of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational.

The Runnin' Rebels (5-1) bounced back from their opening loss to UCLA with wins over Chaminade and the Hoosiers (4-2), who leave Hawaii with just one win.

Indiana trailed by 15 points in the first half and turned on some solid defense to get back in the game. The Hoosiers closed to 55-53 with 8:20 to play. The Runnin' Rebels then went on a 12-1 spurt, with McCaw scoring seven of the points, including a run-closing 3.
