IPFW's Hyde, Seibert save game

The Mastodons lost a big lead but held on to beat Denver

Friday, January 17, 2014 - 12:48 pm

The IPFW women's basketball team let a big lead slip away Thursday night. But Haley Seibert and Amanda Hyde came up big down the stretch, and the Mastodons beat defeated Denver, 81-78 in their Summit League home opener.

IPFW led by as many as 13 in the first half and by 11 at halftime. But Denver rallied in the second half to take a 75-74 lead with 1:17 left in the game. Seibert converted a three-point play to put the Mastodons back on top. Hyde's layup stretched the Mastodons' lead to 79-75 but the Pioneers hit a three-pointer with 8.7 seconds left to pull within one.

Denver fouled Hyde, and she made two free throws for a 81-78 margin. A desperation three-pointer by the Pioneers was no good to give IPFW the victory.

Hyde scored 19 of her game-high 27 points in the second half. Seibert finished with 24 points.

IPFW's record improved to 9-8 overall and 2-1 in the Summit League.

Denver fell to 3-14 and 1-1 in the SL.
