FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Ceola Clark scored 11 points and Western Illinois, despite not scoring in the last 8 minutes of the game, held on to beat IPFW 43-40 Thursday night.

Remy Roberts-Burnett added 10 points for the Summit League-leading Leathernecks (16-4, 8-1 Summit). Jack Houpt's 3-pointer with 12:49 left was Western Illinois' last field goal, and the Leathernecks didn't score after Don McAvoy's free throws made it 43-31 with 8:35 to play.

Mario Hines led the Mastodons (9-13, 2-6) with 13 points and seven rebounds. Joe Edwards scored with 1:34 left to get Fort Wayne within three, but the Mastodons' Luis Jacobo missed a pair of 3-point tries in the final minute.

Western won the first meeting between the teams 62-50 on Dec. 29 in Macomb, Ill.
