Simmons, Ohio dominate Bowling Green again

Bobcats shoot 63 percent, pull away with 16-0 run


ATHENS – Even at full strength, Bowling Green was no match for Ohio in the second half as the Bobcats got their first home win against the Falcons in three years, 95-75, on Saturday.

Three weeks ago, with four players suspended, the Falcons lost 96-72 to the Bobcats. This game was not much different.

Jaaron Simmons dominated with 26 points on 10-of-12 shooting and 11 assists.

“He’s one of the best point guards in the nation. Period. At any level,” Ohio coach Saul Phillips said after Akron coach Keith Dambrot last night discredited Simmons’ 38-point effort against the Zips two weeks ago. “I know this. You don’t want to make him angry.”

When comparing Akron's loss to Kent State to its loss to Ohio, Dambrot suggested the loss to the Bobcats... <Read More>
