IPFW men sign two basketball recruits

Welcome to the IPFW men's basketball program, aka Center Grove North.

The Mastodons announced that Joe Reed, a 6-foot-7 forward from Center Grove, located south of Indianapolis, has signed to play with the Mastodons next season.

He is the third Center Grove player to be linked with IPFW.

Senior guard Jason Smeathers and freshman guard Jonny Marlin, both of whom played at Center Grove, are already members of IPFW.

"He's a skilled post player," IPFW coach Tony Jasick said of Reed, who averaged 14 points and seven rebounds last season. "He can shoot it, and he can score it. He's a pretty good athlete who can probably guard multi positions for us. With Trey (6-10 center McCorkle) and John (6-5 Peckinpaugh) leaving, he's a big get for us."

Jasick also announced that the team signed William Dunn, a 6-3 guard from Benilde-Saint Margaret's, a Catholic prep school near Minneapolis.

"He's a tough, competitive, skilled guy who has won everywhere he's been – in high school and AAU," Jasick said.

Dunn averaged 11 points and three assists last season.

IPFW women's coach Chris Paul said he was still waiting on three confirmations, and is confident he'll receive them.

"The faxes haven't come through yet, but we hope to have every one of them in (Thursday) morning," he said.
