    ATHENS, Ohio -- Nick Kellogg scored 17 points and D.J. Cooper turned in a double-double as Ohio routed Mid-American Conference leaders Akron 85-61 on Sunday night, as the Bobcats denied the Zips a chance to clinch the regular-season title and kept their own hopes alive.

    The win avenged a Jan. 14 loss at Akron, and keeps Ohio's slim chances at a regular-season MAC crown afloat. The Bobcats (23-6, 10-4) have to beat both Kent State and Miami (Ohio) on the road, and hope the Zips lose versus Buffalo and at Kent State.

    Reggie Keely and Walter Offutt added 14 points apiece for the Bobcats, who got 11 points and 10 rebounds from Cooper.

    The Bobcats never trailed in the game, opening on a 17-7 run and taking a 19-point lead at intermission. They outscored the Zips 39-34 in the second half.

    Brian Walsh had 12 points to pace Akron (20-9, 12-2).
