Saturday, January 12, 2008
Convocation Center - Athens, Ohio
--Allen Hester recorded his first start of the season.
--Bubba Walther tied a career-high with seven assists.
--Ohio has now held six straight opponents under 71 points.
--Miami's four 3-pointers made tied a season-low for an Ohio opponent (1/5/08-Bowling Green).
--The Bobcats fouled a season-low 10 times against the RedHawks. The last time the program recorded fewer fouls was Feb. 18, 2006 when Ohio was whistled for nine fouls in a 64-52 win over Samford in the Convo.
--That same Samford game was the last time the program recorded fewer turnovers (6) than it did Saturday (7). On the flipside, Miami made just 12 miscues on its end, an Ohio opponent season-low. The 19 combined turnovers in the game was the fewest in an Ohio game since Jan. 29, 2005 when the Bobcats made seven to the Falcons' 11 in a 72-69 Bobcat victory.
--Ohio was outrebounded (29-31) for the second consecutive game this season in the win over Miami. The last time the Bobcats were outboarded in three consecutive games was Dec. 17-30, 2005 when they lost the edge to Shippensburg (30-32, 73-57 W), Detroit (26-32, 56-55 W) and Kentucky (30-35, 63-71 L).
