Mastodons roll

The tuneup was tuneful. To say the least.

In IPFW's final game before Summit League play opens Thursday night, the Mastodons (12-5) punished both Division III Kalamazoo (5-6) and the scoreboard Saturday afternoon, getting double figures from six players and cruising to a 110-74 beatdown that sends them into league play on a six-wins-in-seven-games tear.

Everyone got a taste, on a day when just about every cylinder hummed. Luis Jacobo scored 18 points and was 5-of-7 from the 3-point line; Joe Reed added 18 and eight rebounds. Mo Evans scored 15, including five 3s in nine attempts. Isaiah McCray scored 14 and Steve Forbes and Pierre Bland had a dozen apiece.

All told, 11 players scored on a day when the Mastodons were 16-of-27 from the arc, blocked seven shots and made seven steals, and outrebounded Kalamazoo 33-26.
