The Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons visit the Miami (OH) Redhawks in non-conference college basketball on Saturday.

Purdue Fort Wayne nearly coughed up a 15 point halftime lead with 20 turnovers leading to 15 more Zips shots to make their 32.8% shooting compete with the Mastodons 46.9%.

Dylan Carl gave the Mastodons eight points and four boards followed by Dee Montgomery with another eight points and six rebounds.

The Miami (OH) Redhawks have been in a groove of late with wins in three of four after downing Wright State 65-62 Wednesday as a seven point road dog. Miami (OH) led 30-29 heading to the locker room with a 44.4%-41.7% shooting edge and six more shots being decisive.

Miami (OH) will win and have the potential to win big at home but the spread is about right…


I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
