It took a while, but IPFW's offense finally got on track.
Even though the Mastodons went the first five minutes and change without scoring, they eventually found the bucket in taking a 26-19 first half lead over North Dakota State on Saturday at Memorial Coliseum.
On Senior Day, Ben Botts and Zach Plackemeier have one three-point basket apiece so far, and Oleg Kovalov misfired on his only shot. But junior center Trey McCorkle has six points and Jeremy Mixon has five to lead the Mastodons.
North Dakota State has made 7 of 25 shots from the field for 28 percent.
