Sycamores sunk by Bobcats

Monday, December 8, 2008

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Steven Coleman scored 11 of his 16 points in the second half to lead Ohio past Indiana State 62-50 in the Marques Maybin Classic on Monday.

Jerome Tillman led the Bobcats (4-3) with 18 points and 16 rebounds and Justin Orr added 15 points for Ohio, which took control in the second half to salvage a victory in the round robin tournament that also featured No. 9 Louisville and Lamar.

Aaron Carter and Jay Tunnell paced Indiana State (1-7) with 20 points each, but the Sycamores shot just 29 percent in the second half and committed 18 turnovers.

The Bobcats led 27-25 at the break but took control early in the second half, stifling the Sycamores on defense and riding Coleman and Tillman to victory.

Coleman hit a 3-pointer and a layup to give Ohio a 53-41 lead with 6:55 remaining and the Sycamores would get no closer than eight the rest of the way.
