OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Maurice Ndour and Javarez Willis scored 15 points apiece as Ohio rallied for an 82-76 overtime win in the Battle of the Bricks against Miami (Ohio) Saturday.
Nick Kellogg added 14 points and Antonio Campbell 13 for Ohio (21-10, 11-7 Mid-American Conference). The Bobcats tied the game in the waning seconds on an acrobatic layup from Ndour and nearly stunned Miami (12-17, 8-10) in regulation before pulling away during overtime.
Following Ndour's make, Kellogg stole the ensuing inbounds pass but stepped out of bounds with .2 seconds remaining as he corralled the ball and drained a 3-pointer.
Kellogg hit a 3 for a 71-70 overtime lead and Willis added another with 2:07 left for a 74-70 advantage. The Bobcats hit 6 of 8 free throws in the final 40 seconds to hold on.
Willie Moore led the RedHawks with 24 points. Quinten Rollins and Will Sullivan each had 12.
