Bryson Scott scored 18 points and John Konchar made the go-ahead free throw with 1:19 left in overtime to give IPFW a stunning 71-68 upset over No. 3 Indiana on Tuesday night.

DeAngelo Stewart made two free throws with 2.9 seconds left to make it a three-point lead, and Konchar picked off the ensuing inbounds pass to seal the biggest win in school history.

Konchar had 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The Mastodons (3-2), who made the move to Division I in 2001-02, had lost all nine previous games against ranked teams and hadn’t even played a Top 25 opponent in nearly four years. But on their home court, with crimson-and-cream clad fans all around, IPFW pulled off the biggest stunner of this early college basketball season in style. The Mastodons trailed for only 90 seconds.

Indiana (3-1) was led by Thomas Bryant with 18 points and Robert Johnson with 16.
