Mastodons have won five straight games

Friday, November 29, 2013 02:00 am
Up next for IPFW: today at IllinoisWhen: 8 p.m.

Where: State Farm Center, Champaign, Ill.

On the air: ESPN 1380-AM, ESPN3

Records: Illinois (6-0), IPFW (6-2)

Expected starters for the Mastodons: Steve Forbes – 6-9, redshirt junior center; Michael Kibiloski – 6-7, senior forward; Joe Edwards – 6-4, junior guard; Isaiah McCray – 6-0 junior guard; Pierre Bland – 6-2 senior guard.

Update: IPFW has won five consecutive games and is coming off a 71-65 victory at Eastern Illinois on Wednesday. In that victory, the Mastodons pounded the Panthers on the glass 33-16. Forbes had his most productive game of the season, as he stayed out of foul trouble and scored a team-best 19 points and tied Pierre Bland with eight rebounds. Bland had an unusually poor shooting night (0-5) after making all seven of his shots in the previous game at Kennesaw State. The backcourt trio of McCray, Bland and freshman Mo Evans shot an anemic 1 for 12 combined in the Eastern Illinois win. IPFW has had six different players lead it in scoring in its eight games this season. The Mastodons' two losses have been by a combined two points.

IPFW coach Tony Jasick: "So far, we haven't seen the 'I'm gonna get mine' attitude on our team. We have a group of guys that we feel are relatively talented. Our talent level is OK and that (good attitude) helps your situation. I think we have a team that is made up of 15 high-character guys, who care about one another, and try to do right by their teammates and by the program."
