ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands – Ohio overcame an early run by Florida State but could not answer one in the second half as the Seminoles defeated the Bobcats, 90-81, on Monday in the final game of the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.

Ohio (3-2) managed to take the lead in the second half despite falling behind 15-2 to start the game, but Florida State (4-1) finished strong and pulled away down the stretch. The Bobcats finished 1-2 in the tournament.

Freshman Jordan Dartis had another big game for the Bobcats, scoring 24 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including a 4-of-7 mark from long range, and Kenny Kaminski continued his hot shooting in the islands by matching Dartis with a 4-of-7 3-point performance and scoring 18 points.

Campbell, Simmons post double-doubles in win over Norfolk State

ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands – Once again, Ohio built a big halftime lead, and this time, the Bobcats had no problem holding it. Ohio went on a late first-half run and coasted to a 93-71 victory against Norfolk State in the second game of the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam on Saturday.

A day after giving up a 19-point second-half lead in a 90-88 loss to Tulsa, Ohio (3-1) took a 20-point lead at the break, and although the Spartans made a run early in the second half, the Bobcats finished strong and ran away with the win.

While the Bobcats relied heavily on Jaaron Simmons and his 30 points against the Golden Hurricane, this time they got a balanced scoring attack that included six players tallying eight or more points. They were led... <Read More>

Ohio’s hot shooting in the first half cooled off in the second half, and 16 second-half turnovers sparked the Golden Hurricane to outscore the Bobcats 39-18 down the stretch.

Led by Sprague, Ouellette, Ohio goes over 600 yards in 48-31 win

Bobcats gain more than 300 yards rushing again

ATHENS – Led by backup quarterback J.D. Sprague, Ohio racked up 607 yards of offense and rolled to a 48-31 victory against Ball State on Tuesday night at Peden Stadium.

Sprague got the start for an injured Derrius Vick and threw three touchdown passes, while Ohio’s ground game dominated for the second straight week. A.J. Ouellette ran 22 times for 121 yards and two scores, and the Bobcats amassed 332 rushing yards.

"I think it’s all of what takes a running game to have a chance to be successful and that’s starting with the O-line,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “And our thing, since we don’t normally run a two-back offense, you’ve got to rely on your quarterback to be a runner also. We were healthy enough to be able to get that done these... <Read More>

Freshmen Dartis, Block help Bobcats rally past Tigers

Ohio overcomes double-digit deficits in both halves

ATHENS – Freshmen Jordan Dartis and Gavin Blocked helped Ohio turned a double-digit second-half deficit into a 75-67 victory against Tennessee State on Monday night at The Convo.

Dartis finished with 17 points, and Block had 12 points, as the Bobcats (2-0) went on a late 21-3 run. The freshmen went scoreless in Saturday’s season opener.

"I think that I can shoot the 3-ball pretty well," Dartis said. "I shot it pretty well in high school. When I finally saw one go in today, I started playing with more confidence and more just kept going in for me."

Keron DeShields scored a layup with 9:30 remaining to put Tigers (1-1) ahead 58-48, but they did not make another field goal until 28 seconds remained.

Kaminski also was a rebound shy of a double-double, and Antonio Campbell had 11 points and six rebounds despite foul trouble that eventually disqualified him. Simmons had seven assists.

Bobcats get first shutout of I-A opponent since 2004

ATHENS – A return to health resulted in a return to victory for Ohio on Tuesday night. After being blown out while shorthanded the last three games, the Bobcats shut out Kent State, 27-0, at Peden Stadium to become bowl eligible for the seventh straight season.

Quarterback Derrius Vick showed his ankle injury has healed, running for 107 yards and a touchdown, and linebacker Quentin Poling’s return to the lineup seemed to make a huge difference on defense, as he had 10 tackles, including three for loss, and an interception.

It was the Bobcats’ first shutout since beating Austin Peay, 38-0, in 2013, and their first shutout of a FBS (I-A) opponent since beating Buffalo, 34-0, in 2004.

Turnovers plague Bobcats in 2nd straight loss

Bulls return 2 interceptions for touchdowns

AMHERST, N.Y. – Buffalo forced four turnovers, including a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns, and blew out Ohio, 41-17, on Saturday at UB Stadium.

Ryan Williamson and Okezie Alozie both had touchdowns off interceptions in the first half, and another Alozie interception of Vick led to a field goal just before halftime as Buffalo built a 31-10 lead.

Ohio (5-3, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) seemed poised to put behind it a 49-14 blowout loss at home against Western Michigan a week before. After a 24-yard third-down pass from Vick to Robbie Walker, Daz’mond Patterson gave the Bobcats a 7-0 lead with a 6-yard touchdown run.

After the defense forced a quick Buffalo punt, Ohio had a chance to add to its lead, but instead, Vick’s first... <Read More>
