Local sports briefs: North Side's Jones commits to IU-SB; IPFW baseball falls to Purdue

Jones averaged 12.7 ppg this season for the Redskins

Friday, March 28, 2014 - 2:09 am

North Side senior Jeremy Jones committed Wednesday to play college basketball at Indiana University South Bend beginning next year.

Jones, a 6-foot-3 wing, averaged 12.7 points per game this past season, helping the team to a 24-2 record before falling to Hamilton Southeastern in regional play.

He joins Oosha Mitchell as North Side players committed to the Titans.

“We always talk about recruiting players, people and programs, and Jeremy is a great get for us on all three levels,” said IUSB coach Scott Cooper in a statement. “He is a very good player who fits our need for better athletes and three-point shooters.

“He comes from one of the top programs in the state, and has been well coached in high school. Most importantly, he is a great kid, and a good student in the classroom. I expect him to do very well here on and off the court."

IUSB competes in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference in NAIA Division II and went 12-18 this season.

IPFW baseball falls to Purdue

Despite out-hitting Purdue for the game, the IPFW baseball team fell to the Boilermakers 7-1 on Wednesday to fall to 5-16 on the season.

The Mastodons accounted for 12 hits, one more than Purdue.

Kristian Gayday was 2-for-3 for IPFW while Carter Deboe and Kendall Whitman each went 2-for-4.

Purdue scored three runs in the third inning to open the scoring and added an additional run in both the fourth and fifth innings to put the game out of reach.

IPFW returns to action on Friday when it takes on North Dakota State.

The teams will compete in a qualifier Friday to determine seeding for a double-elimination tournament that will then lead into the weekend.

On the men's side, freshman Jacob Camacho leads the Warriors after being recently named First Team All-Conference in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference. He leads the team with an average of 191.6 in 49 games.

Brooke Copenhaver leads the women with an average of 179 in 57 games this season.

Indiana Tech baseball wins two

The Indiana Tech baseball team swept its WHAC doubleheader with Lourdes on Wednesday in Ohio.

The Warriors earned their first shutout of the season in a 7-0 victory in Game 1. Concordia Lutheran product Brian Gremaux threw six scoreless innings, allowed just one hit and struck out three.

Romer Portes went 3-for-5 in the victory with three RBIs.

Indiana Tech Game 2 5-2 as Justin Kalusa went 4-for-4 at the plate.

Curtis Wise came on in relief of Kalusa on the mound and picked up the victory.

The Warriors will travel to Michigan this weekend for a four-game series with Concordia.
