ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) — D.J. Cooper scored 18 points Wednesday night as Ohio edged Oakland, Mich., 84-82.

Stevie Taylor added 13 and T.J. Hall 10 for the Bobcats (6-1), who won their third straight and snapped Oakland’s six-game winning streak. Ohio sizzled from 3-point range, hitting 12 of 27 (44.4 percent).

Corey Petros had 23 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Golden Grizzlies (6-3), whose 11-game home win streak ended. Reggie Hamilton matched Petros’ 23 points and Travis Bader had 21, but Oakland was outscored 42-8 off the bench.

Tied 74-74, Ohio’s Reggie Keely scored five points and Cooper three for an 82-74 lead with 1:15 left. Petros’ three-point play and Hamilton’s three free throws cut it to 82-80 with 42 seconds to go.

Cooper and Ivo Baltic sandwiched free throws around a basket by Bader, so the Bobcats led 84-82. But Bader missed a last-second shot that would have tied it.
