Mastodons roll

Batter Purdue-Calumet 106-72 to go to 4-2

This time there would be no held breaths.

Three nights after it came down to a final possession for the second time this season, the IPFW men's basketball team enjoyed 40 minutes of exhale Wednesday night in the Gates Center, rolling to a 29-point halftime lead that morphed into a 106-72 rout of Purdue-Calumet.

Five players hit double figures, led by Mo Evans with 22 and Michael Kibiloski with 15, and 11 scored for head coach Tony Jasick, whose team was coming off a 69-66 win over Tennessee Tech in Texas that went down to the final possession.

Not this time.

This time the Mastodons trailed 3-0 and then never again, scoring 15 of the next 19 points and stringing together runs of 12-2 and 8-1 enroute to a 58-29 halftime lead. They hit the century mark on a three by Herbert Graham with 5:09 to play.

The Mastodons outrebounded Purdue-Calumet 43-27 -- Pierre Bland had eight and Evans seven -- made 12 threes and shot 53.4 percent, while Calumet made just 5 of 20 from the arc, shot 45.6 percent and committed 17 turnovers.
