FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — John Konchar scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Fort Wayne snapped a three-game losing streak by crushing IUPUI 103-73 on Wednesday night.

Konchar was one of five Mastodons in double figures. Kason Harrell scored 16 points, Jordon King finished with 15, Mo Evans added 13, and Bryson Scott 11 for Fort Wayne (15-7, 4-4 Summit League). It is the sixth time over the 100-point plateau this season for the Mastodons, who entered ninth nationally in scoring average at 87.7 points per game.

Evan Hall, Aaron Brennan, Ron Patterson, and T.J. Henderson all scored 11 points for IUPUI (9-12, 3-4).

Fort Wayne scored the first four points of the second half for a 20-point lead, and a Xavier Taylor dunk made it 30, 86-56, with 8:02 left. A Kellon Thomas free throw managed to cut the Fort Wayne lead to 86-65, but the Jaguars never got back within 20.
