Scouting the Jaguars
IUPUI had their nine-game winning streak snapped when it fell to South Dakota 74-56 last Saturday. Dee-Dee Bellamy scored a team-high 11 points, while leading scorer DeAirra Goss, who had scored at least 20 points in three straight games, finished with just nine points on 3-of-16 shooting. Collectively, the Jags hit just 35.2 percent of its shots, but the difference came at the free throw line where USD made 25 of its 28 attempts compared to IUPUI hitting just 16 of its 28 tries.
Goss, a three-time Summit League Player of the Week, leads IUPUI averaging 14.3 points per game. Nevena Markovic is the only other Jaguar player to average double-digit points at 10.4 and is also their leading rebounder at 5.7 per game. IUPUI is 10-2 in 2014, with their lone losses coming to league-leading South Dakota State and South Dakota. The Jags lead the league in fewest points allowed per game, rebounding margin and field goal percentage.
IUPUI holds a two game advantage, 13-11, in the all-time series, including winning the last four meetings. IPFW however has the advantage 7-6 all-time in Summit League games. The 'Dons are just 4-7 all-time at home, with their last win in the Gates Sports Center a 59-50 game on January 9, 2012. Just one game in the series has gone to overtime, with IUPUI taking it 72-62 on February 25, 2008 in Fort Wayne.
