    MACOMB, Ill. -- Nick Daniels and Ben Botts scored 13 points apiece as IPFW held off a late charge by Western Illinois 63-58 on Thursday night.

    Quenton Kirby scored 15 points and hit all eight free throws to pace the Leathernecks (8-12, 2-8). Ceola Clark scored 14.

    The Mastodons led 42-30 on Antwone Snead's basket with 11:25 left. Kirby capped a 9-0 Western Illinois run with two free throws to trim it to 42-39 with 6:27 to go. But Daniels put IPFW up 54-45 with 1:40 left.
