Mastodons rally for win

Down 13 with 16 to play, pull out 86-82 victory

So much for blazing starts.

After nearly getting run out of their building in the first half by an Omaha team playing at warp speed, IPFW finished the first half on an 11-2 run and used that as a launch point, pulling out an 86-82 victory in a game they trailed much of the way.

Down 54-41 with 16:21 to play, the Mastodons scored 27 of the next 36 points to turn the game, regaining the lead at 64-62 on a Joe Reed layup with 9:52 to play. It was the Mastodons' first lead since 7-6, and, although Omaha (12-8, 2-4) tied it twice more, IPFW never trailed again.

Pierre Bland's free throws with 1:44 to play broke the last deadlock at 78-78, and Mo Evans' 3-pointer with 31.4 seconds showing iced it as IPFW went to 17-6 overall and 5-1 in the Summit League.

Reed led the Mastodons with 20 points off the bench and Evans (15), Joe Edwards (13) and Steve Forbes (11) also hit doubles for the Mastodons.
