ATHENS – Jason Preston posted his second career triple-double and the third in program history as Ohio defeated Ball State 85-77 on Saturday afternoon at The Convo.

It was not a good shooting day for Preston, who was 3 of 16, but he finished with 11 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. He added three steals.

"It's one of those deals you always talk about where if you don't shoot the ball well, you can still do a lot of other things," Ohio coach Jeff Boals said. "(Preston's) impact for us is huge.

Just a special player."
