LeBron James scored 29 points, Kevin Love added 21 and the Cleveland Cavaliers exacted a little revenge on Washington with a 113-87 win over the Wizards on Wednesday night. Five days after they were embarrassed in a 91-78 loss to Washington, the Cavs controlled this one from the start and got back to .500. James led the way, also collecting 10 rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes. The four-time MVP, who called his team “fragile” during a recent four-game losing streak, was energized from the start as he powered to the basket and imposed his will on the Wizards. [more...]

Josiah Yazdani kicked a 29-yard field goal as time expired to lift Ohio to a 24-21 win over Miami in “The Battle of the Bricks” Tuesday night.

The Ohio Bobcats made their first road trip of the season last night, and lost 79-62 to Florida Gulf Coast in Fort Myers, Fla. Ohio trailed 45-20 at the intermission, but stormed back with a 24-9 run in the 2nd half to cut the lead to 13. The Eagles however responded with a run of their own in front of a sellout crowd at Alico Arena, before earning the 16 point victory.  Florida Gulf Coast — complete with its #DunkCity tag — made it to the sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament in 2013 and were the preseason favorites to win the Atlantic Sun Conference this year. Maurice Ndour scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Ohio, which fell to 1-1 on the season. [more...]

Drew Hare threw an 18-yard touchdown strike to a wide open Chad Beebe in the end zone with 6 minutes left, and Northern Illinois held on to beat Ohio 21-14 last night.

The Bobcats drove to the Huskies 42 on the ensuing series, but stalled when Landon Smith fumbled with 4:03 to play. The Huskies then ran out the clock. A.J. Ouellette ran for 127 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Ohio (5-5, 3-3). Derrius Vick threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Ouellette to tie the game at 14 with 8:50 to play. [more...]
