ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Luis Jacobo scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting including five 3-pointers and grabbed six rebounds to lead IPFW to a 74-72 victory over Oakland on Saturday.
After Oakland's Travis Bader hit a 3-pointer to tie it at 72, Frank Gaines sunk the go-ahead jumper to give the Mastodons the lead with 1:12 to go. The Golden Grizzlies missed their next two shots including a lay-up with 4 seconds left by Duke Mondy and IPFW (15-16, 7-9 Summit) held on.
Gaines ended the night with 20 points on 8-of-19 shooting. Pierre Bland had nine points, five rebounds and five assists for the Mastodons, which shot 47.5 percent from the field and were 10 of 15 from the free-throw line.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
