I'm trying to do everything I can do to help us win."

Bobcats can't slow down 1st-place Bulls

Buffalo pulls away for 108-82 victory

BUFFALO, N.Y. – For 10 minutes, a hot-shooting offense helped Ohio play with Buffalo, but while the Bobcats cooled off, the first-place Bulls never did on their way to a 108-82 victory Saturday at Alumni Arena.

A bucket by Doug Taylor gave Ohio a 26-21 lead with just under 10 minutes remaining in the first half, but Buffalo took over from there, holding an 87-56 advantage the rest of the game. Buffalo shot 52.7 percent for the game and took advantage of 30 free-throw attempts by making 22.

"If you're not getting stops, your margin for error is razor thin," Ohio coach Saul Phillips said.

Toledo uses big start to beat Ohio

Rockets score first 15 points, hold on in 2nd half

TOLEDO – Ohio showed much better than the first time around against Toledo but a second-half comeback came up short in an 82-74 loss Tuesday night at Savage Arena.

The Bobcats were blown out less than a month ago in their worst Mid-American Conference home loss in program history with a 91-57 loss to the Rockets.

This game seemed to have the same trajectory for a while, with Toledo (19-7, 11-2 MAC) scoring the first 15 points and taking a 37-19 lead with less than five minutes left in the second half, but Ohio (10-15, 3-10 MAC) battled back to as close as six in the second half.

After scoring just 8 points in the last three games, Kevin Mickle had 24 points with six rebounds, while Teyvion Kirk posted a double-double of 21 points and 10... <Read More>

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Twenty turnovers were the undoing of Ohio in a 69-60 loss Saturday at Western Michigan.
