Bobcats rally for gritty 4-overtime victory against Indiana State

Ohio overcomes a pair of large deficits to finish Charleston Classic with a win

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Ohio rallied from 18 down in the second half, from nine down in the second overtime and eventually outlasted Indiana State, 96-94, in four overtimes in the seventh-place game of the Charleston Classic on Sunday at T.D. Arena.

The already short-handed and undersized Bobcats (2-2) lost top reserve forward Kevin Mickle in the first half to an injury and then had two players foul out, but managed to win for the first time in the tournament. Mike Laster led the way with 25 points, while Jordan Dartis scored 21 points, and Teyvion Kirk finished with 20.

Laster’s layup with 1:35 left in the final overtime gave Ohio the lead for good. Trey Knight III made the second of two free throws, and Gavin Block gave the Bobcats a cushion... <Read More>

Cunningham, Davis lead Dayton past Ohio

Bobcats drop 2nd straight game in Charleston Classic

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Josh Cunningham and Darrell Davis combined for 43 points to lead Dayton to a 79-65 victory against Ohio in a consolation round game in the Charleston Classic on Friday evening at TD Arena.

The short-handed and undersized Bobcats again had trouble defending the post, with the 6-7 Cunningham scoring 18 points and grabbing 19 rebounds, including eight on the offensive end. Davis, a 6-5 guard, had 25 points.

The Fliers (2-1) got separation late in the first half with an 8-0 run and held a lead of around 10 points the rest of the way.

Gavin Block’s 3-pointer at the 5:58 mark in the first half cut Dayton’s advantage to 28-27, but Cunningham and Davis followed with consecutive 3s of their own, and Xeyrius Williams followed with... <Read More>

Ohio's rally in final minutes falls short against Clemson

Block scores 19 of his 22 points in 2nd half

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Despite being short-handed in the post, Ohio hung tough but came up short, 81-76, against Clemson on Thursday evening in the first round of the Charleston Classic at TD Arena.

After trailing by as many as 16 points, the Bobcats got as close as four down the stretch, but the Tigers were able to close it out to advance to the second round to take on Hofstra, which knocked off Dayton, 72-69. Ohio (1-1) will play the Fliers.

Playing without top returning forward Jason Carter, out with a lower leg injury, as well as two injured freshman forwards, Ohio – led by Gavin Block – shot well enough down the stretch to get back in the game. Block scored 19 of his 22 points after the break and finished 6 of 12 on 3-pointers with a... <Read More>

Nelson's 4 1st-half TD passes help Akron knock off Ohio

Bobcats lose control of MAC East

AKRON – Backup Kato Nelson threw four first-half touchdown passes, and Akron held off Ohio, 37-34, to take control of the Mid-American Conference East Division lead on Tuesday night at InfoCision Statdium.

The Zips (6-5, 5-2 MAC) took advantage of three turnovers by the Bobcats (8-3, 5-2 MAC) and now need only a win next week against Kent State or an Ohio loss to Buffalo to clinch a spot in the MAC Championship Game. A win by the Bobcats would have ensured them a spot in Detroit for the second straight year.

Playing in place of suspended starter Tommy Woodson, the redshirt freshman Nelson completed 22-of-38 passes for 322 yards. Akron racked up 443 yards of offense, including more than 300 in the first half to end a nine-game losing streak... <Read More>

Freshman Kirk helps Ohio hold off Alabama A&M in opener

Bobcats' 19-point lead shrinks to 4 late

ATHENS – Freshman point guard Teyvion Kirk scored 16 points, and Ohio held off Alabama A&M, 61-53, to open the basketball season Saturday at The Convo.

Playing without Jason Carter, the Bobcats also got 12 points, nine rebounds, three assists and two steals from Gavin Block.

"It's going to be really important for our young guys in particular to take away the fact that we did hold them to 33-34 percent shooting for the game," Ohio coach Saul Phillips said. "We did hold them to 21 percent on threes, so there's some positive in that.”

Ohio (1-0) led 53-34 with 7:18 remaining before Alabama A&M made it interesting in the final minutes by getting to within four on a 17-2 run, capped by an Arthur Johnson 3-pointer with 1:50 to go. The Bulldogs... <Read More>

Ohio rolls in 2nd half in 38-10 rout of Toledo

Bobcats total almost 400 yards rushing

ATHENS – In what could be a preview of the Mid-American Conference championship game, Ohio dominated the second half and routed Toledo, 38-10, on Wednesday night at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats (8-2, 5-1 MAC) were able to slow the high-powered offense of the Rockets (8-2, 5-1 MAC) and continued to power over opponents with their rushing attack.

Ohio racked up 532 yards of offense, including 393 on the ground, while Toledo was limited to 316 yards, including just 58 rushing.

Leading 10-7 to start the second half, Ohio stretched its lead to 10 points on a Nathan Rourke 8-yard touchdown run. Then two plays after a three-and-out by Toledo, Dorian Brown broke a 62-yard touchdown run to make it 24-7.

The Rockets answered back with a Jameson Vent... <Read More>

Mickle leads Ohio in exhibition win over Capital

Bobcats put 5 players in double figures

ATHENS – Graduate transfer Kevin Mickle scored 19 points to lead five players in double figures in Ohio’s 80-57 exhibition victory against Capital on Saturday at The Convo.

Mickle was 8-of-13 shooting and added eight rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench.

"He's been very good every day in practice," Ohio coach Saul Phillips said. "Just with him running the court alone changes the dynamic of this team. We can play off of him. He's been very consistent.”

Starters Jason Carter, Mike Laster and Jordan Dartis had 11 points apiece, and freshman Teyvion Kirk had 10 points as a reserve.

Ohio coach Saul Phillips went with a nine-man rotation, and virtually every player contributed in some way. In addition to Carter, Laster and Dartis, Doug Taylor... <Read More>

Sophomore QB runs for 3, passes for 3, totals 348 yards

ATHENS – Nathan Rourke’s six total touchdowns were the most in the NCAA this year and led Ohio to a 45-28 victory against Miami in the Battle of the Bricks on Tuesday night at Peden Stadium.

Rourke threw for three touchdowns and ran for three more, giving him 29 total on the season, including 16 on the ground.

After Miami (3-6, 2-3 Mid-American Conference) tied the game at 28 with 3:15 left in the third quarter, Rourke’s 11-yard touchdown pass to Jarrid Marhefka put Ohio (7-2, 4-1 MAC) up for good. It was followed by a 1-yard Rourke touchdown run with 10:42 left, and Louis Zervos put the game out of reach with a 36-yard field goal with 6:48 left.
