The Ohio Bobcats season came to a close last night with a tough loss to Denver in the NIT first round, 61-57. The Bobcats and Pioneers went back and forth in the first half, but Ohio would go on a 7-0 run to finish the first half and lead by two at the break. In the second half, the Bobcats pushed their lead out to as many as seven only to have Denver come storming back. Ohio had the ball down by one with seconds remaining, but a DJ Cooper layup was swatted away. With the clock under ten seconds, a last second Reggie Keely layup would fall short and Ohio fell. The Bobcats were led by DJ Cooper with 16 points and Reggie Keely with 12. The Ohio senior class of Reggie Keely, DJ Cooper, Ivo Baltic, Walter Offutt and David McKinley will go out as the winningest in Bobcat history.
Ohio baseball fell to Youngstown State last night in a shootout, 20-15. The Bobcats jumped out to an early 6-2 lead after two innings behind Cody Gaertner’s 4 RBI’s that included a two-run bomb. However, the Penguins would score 11 runs in the top half of the third and never look back. The Bobcats fall to 3-16 with the loss and will now host Toledo on Friday night at 6.
In NCAA Tournament first round action last night, North Carolina A&T edged Liberty, 73-72 and Saint Mary’s handled Middle Tennessee State, 67-54.
The Columbus Blue Jackets continued their point streak last night with a 4-3 win over Nashville. The Jackets jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the second period and scored two goals to start the third period from Nikita Nikitin and Derrick Brassard to go up by three. However, Nashville would score twice in the last two minutes to cut the lead to one, but the comeback would fall short. The Jackets are now tied for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western conference and will host Calgary on Friday night with pre game at 6:45 and drop of the puck at 7 on 970 WATH.
