Purdue Fort Wayne men’s basketball team is currently 14-9 on the season and are sitting at 6th place in the Horizon League with a 6-6 conference record.
The Mastodons have been led in scoring this season by senior guard, Jarred Godfrey, who is averaging 16.2 PPG while shooting 39.5% from the field and 33.3% from three. This average has Godfrey sitting at 7th in PPG in the Horizon League.
Godfrey not only leads the team in points, but he also leads the team in assists with 3.8 per game, steals with 1.5 per game, and blocks with .5 per game. These stats show that the ball is commonly in his hands which has led to his team leading 3.1 turnovers per game.
The Mastodon’s rebound leader is senior forward, Ra Kpedi, who leads the team with 8.3 boards per game.
The 2022-2023 season has seen some big milestones for the team. Back on Nov. 27, Coach Jon Coffman became PFW’s program leader in wins with 143 following a big win over Bluffton. Jarred Godfrey set the programs record for games played on Jan 21 where he played his 142nd career game.
PFW’s last game resulted in a 74-79 loss to Cleveland State last Friday. The team will look to rebound tonight on the road against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies.
Back in December these teams matched up in Fort Wayne which saw a 79-73 overtime win for the Mastodons. The team will hope to gain the same result so they can move to 7-6 in the conference and move into a tie for 5th with Oakland.
