Miami-Ohio Redhawks vs IPFW Mastodons 11/13/2019
The Redhawks had a rough start falling to the Wright St. Raiders, 80-88, in their opening game. An upside was seen Nike Sibande who scored 24 points while adding nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks to his stat line. Mekhi Lairy had a fair night finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals. However, Lairy and Sibande had nine turnovers between them and it was costly for the Redhawks. Dalonte Brown was great and finished with 14 points, six rebounds, one assist and one block. Isaiah Coleman-Lands had 10 points but for the Miami-Ohio Redhawks to win this game over the Mastodons, their star players need to take care of the ball against a pesky Mastodon defense.
