ATHENS - Coach Frank Solich hoped to create competition in Ohio's annual spring Green and White game by putting into play a scoring system to pit the offense against the defense. He got it on Saturday with a game that came down to the final play.

The defense ran on to the field in celebration as it came away a 25-20 winner when Josiah Yazdani's 46-yard field goal clanked off the right upright.

Neither side held anything back. Jovon Johnson delivered a big hit on Jordan Reid in the game's second series, players from each team were called for offsetting personal fouls in the first half and the defense called a timeout before the final play to try to ice Yazdani.

With the game tied at 20, Yazdani connected from 29 yards out after the timeout... <Read More>

CLEVELAND - Kiyana Black scored 25 points and Ohio held Eastern Michigan to 25 percent shooting, pulling away in the second half to earn its first Mid-American Conference Tournament championship since 1986 with a 60-44 victory Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena.

It completed a huge turnaround for the Bobcats from MAC doormats to MAC champions in just the second year under coach Bob Boldon. Ohio, also the regular season title winner, set a new school record for wins in a season with a 27-4 record just two years after one of its worst records of 6-23. The Bobcats went just 9-21 last year in Boldon's first season.

"It makes the best seem even better," said Ohio's only senior Mariah Byard. "I thought that we would be here at the beginning of this... <Read More>

Maurice Ndour finished with 28 points and 11 rebounds, while Stevie Taylor had a career-high 25 points to go with five assists. Javarez Willis had only nine points but contributed a team-high six assists and two steals while playing all 40 minutes.
