(AP) - Rian Pearson notched a double-double and Toledo went on a 5-0 run in the game's final minute to seal a 77-73 comeback win over Ohio on Wednesday night, snapping a three-game
losing skid for the Rockets.
Down 73-72 with 1:08 to play, Curtis Dennis' three-point play
pulled the Rockets (11-13, 3-7 Mid-American Conference) ahead for
good. The Bobcats then missed two jumpers and turned the ball over
once down the stretch, and Matt Smith clinched the win for Toledo
with a pair of foul shot in the game's final second.
Toledo outrebounded Ohio 43-32, and outscored the Bobcats 36-20
in the paint.
Pearson finished with 18 points and a career-high 16 rebounds,
and Smith also tallied 18 points for the Rockets.
D.J. Cooper also had 18 points to lead the Bobcats (19-5, 7-3),
who had a six-game winning streak snapped in defeat.
