February 3, 2013IU EAST BROADCAST SPORTS
RICHMOND, Ind. - Tyler Fangman scored a career-high 30 points to lift the Indiana
University East men's basketball team to a 100-96 Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic
Conference win against Point Park University on Feb. 2 in the Richmond High School
The Red Wolves rallied from an eight-point deficit in the last eight minutes to
improve to 17-8 (7-3 KIAC). Point Park is 12-9 (6-7).
Fangman's 3-pointer with 2:24 remaining put IU East ahead to stay at 93-90. Fangman
(Cold Spring, Ky./Beechwood High School), a sophomore guard, also hit three free
thows in the final two seconds to seal the win.
"Thank goodness he stepped up for us," said IU East coach Mark Hester. "The great
thing about Tyler was he was efficient (just 14 shots) and had nine rebounds, three
assists and no turnovers. That's a big-time game right there."
Several Red Wolves stepped up to help compensate for the absence of injured
sophomore guard Huston Clark (Kokomo, Ind./Kokomo High School), the Red Wolves' No.
2 scorer and leading rebounder.
Six IU East players scored in double figures. Freshman forward Jason Ray
(Martinsville, Ind./Martinsville High School) matched his season best with 12
points. Junior guard Bakari Smith (Indianapolis, Ind./George Washington High School)
matched his career high with 10 points.
T.J. Heatherington led Point Park with 31 points.
"When you look at it, no Huston, some of our key players struggled - we'll take it,"
Hester said. "Point Park is a lot better than their record, and they are a tough
team to match up with and guard."
IU East concludes a five-game homestand on Feb. 5 against Brescia University. Tipoff
is at 7 p.m. in the Richmond High School Tiernan Center. IU East's lone senior,
Marcus Isaac (Indianapolis, Ind./Purdue University North Central) will be honored
after the game.
