    Radford 85, Dartmouth 78

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- Chris Oliver scored a career-high 33 points and had 14 rebounds to lead Radford to an 85-78 win over Dartmouth in the third place game Thursday of the Lobo Invitational.

    Oliver hit 10 of his first 11 shots and finished 12-for-15. The 14 rebounds was one shy of Oliver's career-high and he went 8-for-8 at the free throw line. The 6-foot-6 junior has had double-doubles in six of his last eight games.

    Radford (7-5) took control early in the second half, when Oliver hit five straight baskets to give the Highlanders a 67-56 lead with 14:14 left.

    Dartmouth (1-8) hit nine 3-pointers and the Big Green were led DeVon Mosley and Mike Lang, each with 15 points. Lang had four 3s, three of them in the first half.

    Radford hit 18 of 28 shots in the first half (64.3 percent), with Oliver scoring 16 points as the Highlanders took a 53-45 lead at the break.

    Dartmouth used a late rally to get within 79-74 on a jumper with Mosley with 3:50 left, but Radford countered with a field goal by Whit Holcomb-Faye and an offensive rebound basket by Oliver with just over 2:00 left.

    Holcomb-Faye scored 15 points and Reggie McIntyre scored 11 for Radford. Calvin Arnold scored 12 for Dartmouth, all in the second half.
