Mastodon tracks


Curtains for IPFW ...

... and everyone else.

New, black curtains are up inside the Memorial Coliseum, which makes the arena more intimate for the IPFW basketball games and, of course, the Mad Ants games to come.

A new curtain has replaced the old, blue one at an end of the floor, and curtains have been installed to cover the upper decks.

With the upper deck curtains, the basketball seating capacity for the Coliseum is 5,800.

This was unveiled Monday night as the Mastodons men's team prepares to play Trine in an exhibition.

IPFW will open its 2011-12 season Saturday against Nebraska-Omaha, which will be a Summit League member next season.

We'll give you an update at halftime of how the Mastodons look.
