ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Leon Williams scored all 13 of his points in
the second half and added 18 rebounds, and Ohio defeated Duquesne
73-60 on Saturday.

Williams' layup with 13:37 left broke a 43-43 tie, the 11th of

put Ohio up for good. Twelve points in the stretch came off
offensive rebounds, as the Bobcats outrebounded the Dukes 48-23 for

44 percent for a 30-30 halftime tie.

each added 12 for the Bobcats (4-2). Ohio shot 64 percent in a
second-half turnaround as the Dukes fell to 29 percent.

Duquesne (2-8) got 18 points each from Bryant McAllister and
Jack Higgins, who was 4-of-8 on 3-pointers.
