The Mastodons (5-5) got within 38-36 on Luis Jacobo's swooping scoop shot under the left side of the rim with 2:01 gone in the half. IPFW wouldn't get another basket until Kevin Harden's pull-up jumper off a fast break with 4:00 left.

Prior to that, Valparaiso (6-2) went on a 10-0 run when it broke away from a 43-41 game into a 53-41 lead.
