Javarez Willis scored 22 points including six 3-pointers and Maurice Ndour added 16 and four blocked shots as Ohio survived a frenetic Raven Lee outburst and avenged an earlier loss to Eastern Michigan 76-73 Saturday. The sophomore Lee scored 24 of Eastern Michigan’s 28 points in the last 9:34 as the Eagles rallied from 11 points down to make it a two-point game in the final minute. But Lee, who finished with a season-high 33 points, missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the horn when the shot went wide. He scored 24 of the Eagles’ 25 points before Tim Bond made a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left, pulling Eastern Michigan to 75-73. Stevie Taylor made 3 of 4 foul shots inside the final minute for Ohio, which was embarrassed 76-40 by the Eagles Jan. 27. [more...]

Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson’s pass in the end zone with 20 seconds left, helping the New England Patriots hold on to beat the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 last night for their fourth Super Bowl title.  The 37-year-old Brady led New England back from a halftime defecit, hitting Julian Edelman with 2:02 left for his 12th career Super Bowl touchdown pass, breaking Joe Montana’s record. The Seahawks were in position for another improbable victory when Jermaine Kearse made a juggling, 33-yard catch while on his back. With the ball on New England’s 1, Seattle appeared to be headed toward a second straight Super Bowl title. Butler spoiled the Seahawks’ bid, stepping in front of Ricardo Lockette for the interception that sealed the win for the Patriots. [more...]

Maurice Ndour scored a career-high 31 points, including the game-winning dunk with 0.6 seconds to play, and Ohio beat Buffalo 63-61 on Saturday. Trailing 32-31 at halftime, Buffalo rallied and led 58-53 with 3:24 to go. Ndour scored the next eight points to give Ohio a 61-58 advantage with 56 seconds remaining. Buffalo tied it on Jarryn Skeete’s 3-pointer with 41 seconds left. But Antonio Campbell grabbed an offensive rebound with 2.9 seconds remaining and, after a timeout, Campbell threw the ball down the court to Ndour, who dunked for the game-winner. It was Ndour’s 15th double-figure game this season.  Ryan Taylor scored 12 points for Ohio and Campbell grabbed 10 rebounds. [more...]

Javarez Willis sank seven 3-pointers and finished with 27 points and Ohio defeated Ball State 82-73 last night. Stevie Taylor added 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting off the bench with seven assists and four steals, while Maurice Ndour chipped in 17 points and eight rebounds for Ohio. Willis was 9 of 15 from the floor, 7 of 9 from deep and dished out six assists.

Willis made a pair of 3-pointers and Treg Setty converted a three-point play that helped Ohio move out to a 66-51 lead with 8:15 left and they coasted from there. [more...]

The Athens Bulldogs improved to a perfect 9-0 overall and 4-0 in the Tri Valley Conference Ohio Division after a hard fought 32-27 victory at Alexander last night. The Spartans didn’t allow an Athens player to score in double figures, but couldn’t muster enough points to pull off the upset. The Bulldogs led 25-23 after the 3rd quarter – and scored just 7 in the final frame, but held Alexander to only 2 fourth quarter points to win their 9th straight to open the season. Micah Couch scored a game high 19 points and grabbed 7 rebounds to lead Trimble past Federal Hocking 57-37 to remain undefeated on the season. The Nelsonville-York Buckeyes struggled with Meigs before falling to the Marauders 58-52. [more...]

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 246 yards and four touchdowns and Ohio State won the first national title in college football’s playoff era, running over Oregon 42-20 last night. Elliott scored three straight times in the second half for the Buckeyes, seeded fourth in the four-team bracket, after the Ducks pulled within a point in the third quarter. The Buckeyes overcame four turnovers to give Urban Meyer his first title in his third season at Ohio State after he won two championships at Florida under the old BCS system. Cardale Jones, who started the season as Ohio State’s third-string quarterback, accounted for two scores as the Buckeyes won their fifth national championship. Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass on the opening drive, but couldn’t lead the second-seeded Ducks to their first national title. [more...]

Andrew Luck threw for 376 yards and one touchdown, Daniel “Boom” Herron ran for another score and Indianapolis dominated the second half to beat Cincinnati 26-10 in the AFC wild-card round Sunday. For Cincinnati, the postseason misery continued: It became the first team in NFL history to lose four consecutive opening-round playoff games. Andy Dalton finished 18 of 35 for 151 yards and lost a fumble as he fell to 0-4 in the playoffs. Indy led 13-10 at halftime, but Luck changed the game by floating a perfect 36-yard TD pass to Donte Moncrief that made it 20-10. Adam Vinatieri then sealed the win with the final two of his four field goals. [more...]

It’s Nick Saban vs. Urban Meyer. Sure, players win games, but the two coaches will be center stage at the Sugar Bowl in college football’s inaugural playoff. Saban and top-seeded Alabama face Meyer and fourth-seeded Ohio State on New Year’s Day, a semifinal matchup between two of the nation’s most storied programs. Saban has established himself as perhaps the greatest coach of this generation, winning three national titles at Alabama after taking a BCS title during his time at LSU. Meyer captured a pair of national titles at Florida, and now he’s two wins away from landing another with the Buckeyes. Tonight’s game between the Buckeyes and Crimson Tide will kick off at 8:30PM on ESPN. [more...]

The Alexander Spartans led Logan at halftime but fell to the Chieftains 51-43 at Jim Myers Gymnasium in Logan.

Griffin Lutz scored a game high 19 points and Athens remained perfect on the season after beating Circleville 60-35 last night. Joe Burrow scored 16 for the Bulldogs, who improved to 5-0. Athens carried just a five point lead into the locker room at half, but outscored the Tigers 19-13 in the 3rd to take a 41-30 advantage into the final frame. The Bulldogs then held Circleville to just five fourth quarter points to seal the victory. Athens will be back in action tonight when it welcomes Marietta to McAfee Gymnasium on The Plains. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 7:15 and the tipoff at 7:30.
