Keydets shoot 68 percent in 2nd half to down Bobcats

Ohio's season comes to end with CIT quarterfinal loss

ATHENS – Trailing by 12 with little more than three minutes remaining, Ohio had a chance to tie in the final minute but came up short – after it led by as many as 17 points in the first half – falling 92-90 to VMI in the quarterfinals of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament on Wednesday night at The Convo.

Though it did not matter in the final results, the Mid-American Conference career 3-point leader Nick Kellogg hit one last shot at the buzzer and finished his career with his best-ever scoring output of 30 points. Maurice Ndour had 26 points but the Bobcats (25-12) did not quite keep pace with the high-scoring Keydets (22-12).

ATHENS – Ohio accepted a bid to play in the CollegeInside.com Tournament and will host Cleveland State in the first round at 7 p.m. Wednesday at The Convo.
