Bowling Green upsets Ohio, 87-82, creates 3-way tie for 2nd

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) Wesley Alcegaire and Spencer Parker each scored 20 points and Bowling Green held off a late challenge to post an 87-82 upset victory over Ohio Tuesday night.

The Bobcats brought a five-game winning streak into the game and had pulled out of a three-way tie for second place Saturday with a win over Miami. The loss knocked Ohio back into a three-way tie for second with Kent State and Buffalo, but the Bobcats did not lose ground to division-leading Akron, which was upset by Miami Tuesday.

Jaaron Simmons drilled a 3-pointer with under four minutes to play to briefly give Ohio (18-9, 9-6) a 69-68 lead, but Bowling Green (14-14, 5-10) answered with back-to-back jumpers by Alcegaire and Parker to retake a lead it would not relinquish.

Antonio Campbell scored 29 points and Simmons added another 24 to lead Ohio, but the Bobcats got just three points from its bench.
