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>

KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Ohio's seniors did their part but it was not enough in a season-ending 82-74 loss to Western Michigan in the first round of the Mid-American Conference Tournament on Monday night at University Arena.

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.

"I just kind of knew what time it was," Taylor said. "What (former Ohio) Coach (John) Groce told me freshman year is that the season is broken up into three different seasons. I knew this was a new season, a new start for me, and I just wanted to leave it out there for my guys, my... <Read More>

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo scored 52 points in the second half and handed Ohio its seventh straight loss, 93-66, on Tuesday night at Alumni Arena.

The Bulls' lead was just 41-32 after a Javarez Willis 3-pointer to start the second half, but things got away from the Bobcats quickly after that, with Buffalo using a 12-0 run to go up 22 only five minutes into the half.
