Mastodons beat RedHawks a year ago

Tuesday, December 03, 2013 12:03 am
Up next for IPFW: today at Miami (Ohio)When: 7 p.m.

Where: Millett Hall, Oxford, Ohio

Radio: ESPN 1380-AM

Records: Miami (Ohio) (0-4), IPFW (6-3)

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 is coming off an impressive – in some regards – performance at Illinois, where the Mastodons limited the Illini to less than 40 percent shooting and out-rebounded them 39-33. However, IPFW's 2-of-13 free-throw shooting led to it missing out on the epic upset, as it fell 57-56 on Friday. Redshirt junior center Steve Forbes has been productive. He has scored in double figures a team-best six times, but he has also fouled out in four of the nine contests. The Mastodons defeated the RedHawks 57-56 last season in Fort Wayne on a buzzer-beater by Mario Hines. The win was the fourth by IPFW against Mid-American Conference competition. The Mastodons received votes (nine) this week for the first time in two seasons in the CollegeInsider.com Men's Mid-Major Poll. IPFW has been tremendous on the glass lately. Not only did the Mastodons out-rebound Illinois, but on average, they hold a 36-30 rebounding advantage on their opponents this season. Offensively, six different players have led them in scoring and four different players have led in assists. Six different players have had a team-best rebounding effort.

IPFW coach Tony Jasick:"We are preparing the same for Miami as we did for Illinois and we did for IU-Kokomo. (Each game) We are preparing our team to play a little bit better than we did the last time out. And we'll do the same thing for Dartmouth (Saturday). We want to get a little bit better every time that we have the opportunity to get together.”
