Big win for IPFW

Five players, led by Frank Gaines' 17 points, scored in double figures for IPFW (13-16, 6-9 Summit League). Luis Jacobo had 15, Joe Reed had 14, Joe Edwards had 11 and Mario Hines had 10.

Until Wednesday, IPFW's last win over Oakland was on Feb. 16, 2008, when the Mastodons won in Rochester, Mich. 71-68.
