IPFW and Coach Fife Showed Them at the Show Me Center

IPFW Gets 65-64 Win Over Southeast Missouri State

IPFW basketball gets its first regular season victory on the road at the Show Me Center at Southeast Missouri State. The SE Missourian newspaper gives the story from the losing team's homebase.
"Much credit to IPFW. They were more aggressive than we were starting out," senior center Ketshner Guerrier said. "We have to have that killer instinct from the start, and not wait until the second half."
And if you think that is a great comment about the style of play new Coach Dane Fife is bringing to the Mastodons there is an even better comment about IPFW at the Sportsblog of the SE Missourian. Mike Mitchell writes on his blog:
Just how important is Montana transfer and Portageville native Roy Booker to the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks offense? Through the first two games, Booker has scored 42 points, or 34% of the team's total output. He had 25 in last night's one-point loss to Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne. IPFW, by the way, has to have one of the coolest nicknames in all of college sports: the Mastodons. [Emphasis added]
Flashback: Federal Judicial Decision states that Mastodon is a "cool" nickname. See page 2 - Crue v. Aiken, 370 F.3d 668 (7th Cir. 2004).

Didn't Mark Souder have something to do with creating the Mastodon nickname?
