    ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Jeff Halbert hit two late free throws to give Ohio a lead and Terren Harbut hit two more with 9 seconds left to help keep it in the Bobcats' 72-69 win over Bowling Green on Saturday.

    Ohio (10-7, 5-4 Mid-American Conference), which improved to 8-0 at home this season, trailed 66-61 with 4:44 left but scored 11 of the final 14 points.

    Halbert's two foul shots with 1:24 left gave the Bobcats a 68-66 lead. After Bowling Green's Cory Eyink missed a jumper, Halbert rebounded and teammate Mychal Green scored on a layup with 21 seconds remaining.

    Eyink hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 70-69 with 11 seconds left but Harbut was fouled after the inbounds pass and hit both shots. The Falcons' John Floyd missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key at the buzzer.

    John Reimold scored 23 points and Josh Almanson had 14 for Bowling Green (12-7, 6-3).

    Jeremy Fears and Sonny Troutman each scored 14 points, Leon Williams and Green each had 13 and Harbut hit for 10 for the Bobcats.
