OHIO 81, EVANSVILLE 59
ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Nick Kellogg scored 13 points and three
teammates scored in double digits Saturday as Ohio dominated
Evansville in an 81-59 win.
Ricardo Johnson and Javarez Willis each scored 12 for Ohio (6-1)
and Travis Wilkins added 10. Kellogg scored three 3-pointers and
the Bobcats outshot the Aces 48.4 percent from the field to 37.7
Egidijus Mockevicius led Evansville (5-2) with a game-high 19
points and 9 rebounds and D.J. Balentine added 15 points.
Mockevicius scored four quick points but Ohio went on a 7-point
first-half run and raced away, leading 42-26 at halftime.
Evansville's defense stiffened in the second half and the Aces
at one point scored 10 unanswered points, but Ohio dominated,
winning the rebound battle 40-31 and making 11 of 14 free-throw
Ohio now has won four straight games. Kellogg needs just 21
points to become the 36th 1,000-point scorer in Ohio history.
