Bobcats roll past Red Storm in exhibition win

Kirk scores 20, Carter adds 18

ATHENS Teyvion Kirk scored 20 points and Jason Carter added 18 as Ohio cruised to a 93-52 victory against Rio Grande in an exhibition game Saturday at The Convo.

The Bobcats played most of last season without Carter and all of it without Ben Vander Plas during his true freshman season. He scored 14 points off the bench. Doug Taylor and junior college transfer Antonio Cowart. Jr. had 10 points each.

With Jordan Dartis and James Gollon missing the game because of injuries, the starters were Carter and Taylor at forward and Kirk, Cowart Jr. and freshman Jason Preston at guard. Preston went 0 for 5 and scored one point with a team-leading four assists.

Gavin Block had six points in just 10 minutes off the bench. Freshmen Nate Springs and Mason McMurray scored four points each.

Cameron Schreiter led the Red Storm with 18 points. Earl Russell added 14 points.

Ohio coasted throughout, leading 52-24 at halftime.

The Bobcats open the regular season against Wilberforce at 7 p.m. Wednesday at The Convo.
