    ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Jerome Tillman scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Ohio overcame a 39-point performance from Damon Huffman to defeat Brown 80-74 Tuesday night in the first round of the College Basketball Invitational.

    Leon Williams had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats (20-12, 9-7 Mid-American), and Bubba Walther finished with 10 points and 12 assists.

    Huffman had nine of Brown's 16 3-point field goals. He scored the first 14 points for the Bears (19-10, 11-3 Ivy), and had 22 points by halftime, with Brown building a lead as great as 10 in the first half. They led by five at the halftime buzzer.

    Mark McAndrew scored 15 points and Peter Sullivan had 10 for Brown.
