Abilene Christian tops Ohio in CBI quarterfinal

Sears' career-high 37 points not enough with Carter out

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Jason Carter left the game with an injury after only 14 seconds, and Ohio trailed nearly the whole night in a 91-86 loss to Abilene Christian in the quarterfinals of the College Basketball Invitational on Monday night at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Mark Sears scored a career-high 37 points, and Ben Vander Plas had 19 points and 11 rebounds in what could be his final game, but it was not enough for the No. 3 seed Bobcats (25-10) as their season came to an end.

“This isn’t indicative of our season,” Ohio coach Jeff Boals said. “Second most wins in school history. These guys were fun to coach. They’re high character guys.”

Carter has 26 points, 12 rebounds in 65-64 win

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Mark Sears struggled for most of the game but came up clutch when it mattered.

“An unbelievable play by Mark at the end,” Ohio coach Jeff Boals said. “We made one more play than them, and... <Read More>
