Bobcats continue winning streak against RedHawks

Laster, Dartis lead Ohio to 75-66 win

OXFORD Ohio won for the fourth time in its last five games and won for the seventh straight time against rival Miami with a 75-66 victory Friday night at Millett Hall.

Mike Laster scored 22 points, while Jordan Dartis had 21 points. Doug Taylor added 10 points and nine rebounds for the Bobcats (14-16, 7-11 Mid-American Conference).

"Us as a team, we have one goal, and that's to win a MAC Championship, so we're taking it one game at a time," Laster said. "Just taking it possession by possession and making sure we get the right shots. Just doing the things we got to do. I mean, I'm not even getting into a losing mindset. I'm trying to do everything I can do to help us win."

Nike Sibande paced the RedHawks (15-16, 8-10 MAC) with 23 points, followed by Jalen Adaway with 13 points and Logan McLane and Dalonte Brown with 10 points each.

Down 51-48 with 12 minutes remaining, Ohio went on an 11-0 run to take the lead for good.

"It just feels good to get on a streak," Dartis said. "We've won four of the last five. I will say this means a lot to the people back home in Athens and just beating Miami, it's just a good feeling. Like I said earlier this season in the press conference, we beat our rival."

The Bobcats will get a chance to add to their winning streak against the RedHawk in the first round of the MAC Tournament. Ohio, the No. 10 seed, will return to Oxford to face No. 7 Miami, at 7 p.m. Monday.
