It wasn't Paris, not by a long shot. But the IPFW Mastodons constructed their own Arc de Triomphe tonight.
This one was the 3-point arc, and the Mastodons (16-6, 4-1 Summit League) drowned state rival IUPUI with a hard rain from there. Thirteen 3s, plus five players in double figures (led by Luis Jacobo with 19), plus a 37-28 advantage on the glass and a 42-24 edge in the paint, all led to a 90-75 victory that got them back on track after the loss at South Dakota a week ago.
The Mastodons used an 18-4 run across the middle of the first half to cut themselves loose, and the visiting Jaguars (6-16, 0-5) never really challenged again. IPFW took a 15-point lead into halftime and expanded to as many as 20 points to cruise home.
Besides Jacobo, Pierre Bland finished with 16 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals; Steve Forbes had 16 and seven rebounds; Mike Kibiloski scored 14 including four threes; and Mo Evans had 10.
