    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Brandon Cole scored 18 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer during a 9-6 run, as IUPUI edged Elon 58-57 Saturday night.

    Brandon Cameron scored 16 for the Jaguars (4-5), who outlasted Elon through five ties in the second half, including one in the final minute.

    Elon (2-7) trailed 29-23 at the break but took a 38-36 lead on a James Brett 3-pointer about six minutes into the second half. The Phoenix outscored IUPUI 34-29 in the second half.

    Chris Chalko led Elon with 15. Colin Wyatt had 10.

    Following Brett's 3-pointer, the Jaguars went on a 9-6 run and caught up when Cole nailed a 3-pointer with 8:35 left to make it 44-44.

    After that, it was back-and-forth as the Phoenix tied it up at 50 and took a one-point lead on a pair of free throws by Wyatt. But Angelo Smith hit a layup with 3:03 left to give IUPUI a 52-51 lead.

    The Phoenix tied three more times in the final three minutes -- the last time at 57-57 with less than one minute remaining -- but never led again. A free throw by Smith gave the Jaguars the winning edge.

    IUPUI scored 23 points off turnovers, compared with 12 for Elon.
