IPFW’s Gaines to return

– IPFW senior Frank Gaines will return from a one-game suspension when the Mastodons (4-4) face Miami of Ohio (3-2) at 7 tonight at Memorial Coliseum, according to IPFW coach Tony Jasick.

Gaines, the 6-foot-4 guard who leads IPFW with a 20.7 scoring average, did not play in the Mastodons’ 54-49 loss at Navy on Wednesday.

“It was a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the program,” Jasick said.

“At this point we’re locked and loaded and ready to go (tonight). And I’m looking forward to him as well as the rest of our team playing well against Miami.”

Jasick did not elaborate on the cause of the suspension.

“No issues whatsoever; great kid,” Jasick said.

“As you go through the maturing process, you learn from every situation. I think he’s a great kid, and I’m excited to see what kind of year he can finish with.”

Jasick said that the team missed Gaines against Navy.

“You could say that, but at the end of the day, we didn’t start the game the right way and dug a hole and fought like crazy to get ourselves back in the game,” he said. “We didn’t get critical defensive stops when we needed to.”
