Carter leads Ohio's strong 2nd half in win

Bobcats knock off Camels 81-73

ATHENS – Jason Carter nearly scored his career high with 24 points as Ohio finished strong to beat Campbell, 81-73, on Monday night at The Convo.

Doug Taylor had a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds, while Teyvion Kirk contributed 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists, and Ben Vander Plas also had 14 points off the bench. Jason Preston scored 12 points.

The Bobcats (2-0) trailed 41-35 at halftime and the Camels held the lead until Gavin Block’s 3-pointer with 12:50 remaining moved Ohio in front 49-46. Doug Taylor’s dunk gave the Bobcats their biggest lead, 71-60, with 1:42 remaining, though Campbell made it interesting down the stretch, missing a 3-pointer while down six with about 15 seconds to go.

Chris Clemons led the Camels with a game-high 26 points but it was well below his average of 35.5 points coming into the game and it did not come easy. He was 8 of 22 from the field.

Isaac Chatman had 16 points, while Andrew Eudy scored 12 points for the Camels (1-2).

Carter, who played only three games last year because of an injury, was 8 of 10 from the field with four rebounds. Also injured last season as a true freshman, Vander Plas went 4 for 7 and has averaged 15 points in just 17.5 minutes in his first two games.

Antonio Cowart Jr. was the only Ohio starter not in double figures. He went scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting but was big on defense and contributed seven rebounds and three assists.

Ohio shot 49.1 percent, including 63.2 percent in the second half. Campbell shot 43.6 percent but only 31.3 percent after halftime.

The game was the first in the Jersey Mike’s Jamaica Classic with the rest of the action heading to Montego Bay beginning with a game against South Florida at 4:30 p.m. Friday on CBS Sports Network.
