Final Score: IUPU-Fort Wayne 86, Eastern Illinois 65

Ft. Wayne, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Steve Forbes had a game-high 20 points and Luis Jacobo scored 18 off the bench, as the IUPU-Fort Wayne Mastodons rolled to an 86-65 win over the Eastern Illinois Panthers in non-league play at the Gates Sports Center.

Isaiah McCray added 15 points and Mo Evans scored 12 to help the Mastodons (10-4) notch their fourth straight victory.

The Panthers (3-8) suffered their sixth consecutive loss, despite four starters in double figures, led by Alex Austin's 16 points. Coincidentally, the losing streak began with a 71-65 loss to these same Mastodons when they faced each other on Nov. 27.
