It should be an interesting year from the Bobcats, without knowing much of what to expect from them. Head Coach Saul Phillips enters his 4th season at the helm of the OU program this year. 6 players return from last season who got major playing time with the graduations of Kenny Kaminski and Antonio Campbell and starting point guard Jaaron Simmons transferring to Michigan. Key pieces in Jason Carter (So), Gavin Block (Jr), Mike Laster (Sr), Jordan Dartis (Jr) and Doug Taylor (Jr) return to the team this year, with a mix of incoming freshman and returning players who will see some time on the court this year.

After a 80-57 exhibition win over Capital on Saturday, the Bobcats will tip-off the regular season this coming Saturday as Alabama A&M comes to town.

OU (1-0) opened up their season this afternoon against Alabama A&M (0-1), by defeating the Bulldogs 61-53. The Bobcats took a 10 point lead into halftime, with that lead being cut down to 8 by the end of the game, but OU held on for the victory. OU's stellar freshman guard, Teyvion Kirk led all scorers with 16 points, followed by Gavin Block with 12 points and Kevin Mickle with 10 points. Mohamed Sherif led A&M's attack with 14 points on the day.

Ohio will take their win and prepare for their next game, which isn't until Thursday, when they play Clemson in the Gildan Charleston Classic.

Opening up the Gildan Charleston Classic, the Bobcats (1-1) could never quite get control of the game against Clemson (3-0), ultimately getting edged out, 81-76. Fortunately for the Bobcats, this was a very good showing for them, especially for Junior Forward, Gavin Block, who achieved a career high 22 points, while also bolstering his stats with 10 rebounds to achieve a double-double, he led all scorers in the game. Jordan Dartis also chipped in 18 points for OU on the night. Donte Grantham led Clemson on the night with a 20 point performance. Followed by Elijah Thomas who posted a 17 point-15 rebound double-double.

Next up, the Bobcats will take on Dayton in the loser's bracket of the Gildan Charleston Classic tomorrow.

Going up against a receiving votes Dayton (2-1) team in the second game of the Gildan Charleston Classic, the Bobcats (1-2) didn't have much luck, falling to the Flyers 79-65. Jordan Dartis led OU with 19 points, followed by Gavin Block with 14 and Teyvion Kirk with 12 points. Darrell Davis led the Flyers, and all scorers, with 25 points.

On Sunday, the Bobcats will wrap up the Gildan Charleston Classic against a very good Indiana State team at 1pm.

What. A. Game. At halftime, the Bobcats (2-2) trailed Indiana State (1-3) by 16 points, then in the second half, they came all the way back to tie it up in regulation. Then, overtime here we come, it didn't take one, not two, not even three, it took four overtimes for OU to eventually take the win 96-94. Mike Laster led all scorers with 25 points, followed by Jordan Dartis with 21 points and Teyvon Kirk with 20 points. Devin Thomas led Indiana State's effort with 17 points on the night.

Next up for the Bobcats, they will host Mount St. Mary's on this coming Friday night.

Taking in Friday night's game myself in the Convo, I witnessed Ohio (3-2) absolutely dominate Mt. St. Mary's (2-4) by a final score of 96-77. The Bobcats ran out of this one quick, draining threes and driving to the basket early, and before you knew it, they were up by 20 in the first half. "The Mount" was only able to close the gap by one point in the second half, and the Bobcats just kept rolling on. Teyvion Kirk and Mike Laster both led the Bobcats with 20 points each and Doug Taylor added a 14 point-11 rebound double-double. For MSM's, Junior Robinson led all scorers with 21 points.

Next up for OU, they will host Iona on Tuesday.

A frustrating beginning to the season continues, as Ohio (3-3) dropped a high scoring affair to Iona (2-4) at home, 93-88. For the Bobcats, Mike Laster led all scorers with 23 points, followed by Gavin Block with 18 points. For Iona, EJ Crawford tossed in 20 points, to go along with TK Edogi's 20 point and 12 rebound double-double for the victors. A tied game at the half, the Gaels were able to gain the slight advantage in the second half to seal the win.

Next up for OU, they will host Coppin State on Friday.

Last night, Ohio (4-3) got back in the win column, in a game where they were never even remotely challenged, leading the game from start to finish, defeating Coppin State (0-7) of the MEAC, 80-37. The Bobcats' Mike Laster led all scorers with 18 points, followed by Kevin Mickle with 15 points. The visitors were led by Adam Traore and Karonn Davis who scored 8 points each.

OU's next matchup is a big one, where they will play at Maryland on Thursday.

The Bobcats (4-4) got back in action tonight, as they traveled to College Park to take on Maryland (8-3). This was a game that OU was outmatched the whole way, as the Terrapins got the win, 87-62. Although the Bobcats got ambushed in this game, Mike Laster had a decent game for Ohio, dropping in 14 points as the only Bobcat in double figures. Leading Maryland in the game was Kevin Huerter, who scored a team and game high 17 points for the home team.

The Bobcats will look to get back into the win column on Sunday when they host Western Kentucky.
