MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL: IU EAST 66, CINCINNATI CHRISTIAN 63
CINCINNATI, Ohio - Tyler Fangman scored a career-high 26 points - on his 20th
birthday - as the Indiana University East men's basketball team held off Cincinnati
Christian University on Jan. 15 in a Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference
The Red Wolves (12-7, 2-2) snapped a three-game losing streak. CCU fell to 8-10
overall and 2-2 in the KIAC.
Fangman, a sophomore guard whose hometown of Cold Spring, Ky., is just across the
Ohio River from Cincinnati, hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with two minutes remaining.
He also hit a pair of free throws with 6.6 seconds remaining to force CCU to go for
a desperation 3-pointer on its final possession.
"It is a big deal for me to come here and have my family and friends here, but the
most important thing is that we got the win," said Fangman, who shared a box of
birthday cupcakes on the ride home. "We struggled late in the game, but we did the
things we needed to do to pull it out and get a conference win."
Sophomore guard Huston Clark (Kokomo, Ind./Kokomo High School) added 18 points for
Junior guard Bakari Smith (Indianapolis, Ind./George Washington High School) led IU
East with seven rebounds and four assists.
