    OXFORD, Ohio -- Jerome Tillman hit two free throws with 3 seconds remaining to secure Ohio's 66-62 road win over rival Miami of Ohio on Wednesday night.

    Tillman scored 35 points for Ohio (9-6, 2-0 Mid-American Conference) and hit four of seven from behind the arc to finish as the only Bobcat in double digits. Ohio took the lead for good at the end of the first half with a three-pointer by Michael Allen, who finished with eight points and five assists.

    The only lead for Miami (8-6, 1-1) came on its first score, a three-pointer by Michael Bramos about two minutes into the game. Bramos led the RedHawks with 17 points, and Adam Fletcher added 10.

    The victory marks Ohio's fifth consecutive win and gives the Bobcats a 94-88 lead in the rivalry series dating to 1908.
