    CHARLESTON, Ill. -- Steve Forbes scored a game-high 19 points with eight rebounds as IPFW posted a 71-65 victory over Eastern Illinois Wednesday night.

    Forbes went 8 of 11 from the field and hit 3 of 4 from the line. He was joined by Michael Kibiloski who scored 12 points and Joe Edwards with 11 points, two rebounds and three assists.

    The lead changed hands six times before the end of the first period with IPFW holding a 2-point lead into the break. The Mastodons (6-2) started the second period shooting flat and Eastern Illinois again took the lead. But a Mo Evans 3-pointer at 10:50 sparked a Mastodon rally, allowing the team to establish an 11-point lead with 3:10 left to play. The win extends IPFW's winning streak to five.

    Sherman Blanford was the lead scorer for the Panthers (3-3) with 17 points, three rebounds and three assists.
