Kyle Rowland | The Journal Gazette
IPFW closed the regular season in style, defeating Western Illinois 84-64 on Saturday night at the Gates Sports Center.
In victory, the Mastodons avenged an earlier season loss at Western Illinois and enter the Summit League tournament winners of eight of their final 10 games.
IPFW made up for its shooting woes in a loss to Nebraska-Omaha on Thursday by shooting 55 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range. It limited Western Illinois to below 40 percent from the field and beyond the arc.
The Mastodons had five players finish in double figures, with senior Joe Edwards leading the way with a career-high 23 points on Senior Night. Fellow senior Isaiah McCray and Mo Evans had 16, and Max Landis and Michael Calder recorded 10 apiece.
Steve Forbes finished with five points, seven rebounds and three assists.
IPFW never trailed and led by as many as 25.
