ATHENS (AP) — D.J. Cooper scored a season-high 22 points and Ohio defeated Bowling Green 72-59 Wednesday night to snap a two-game skid, split the season series and win its 20th game of the season.

Trailing 55-52 with 6:11 to go, Ohio held the Falcons to two free throws and a field goal.

Cooper scored 13 points in the final 5:32, starting with a 3-pointer and a jumper to push the Bobcats ahead for good and snap Bowling Green’s four-game winning streak.

Jon Smith added nine points and nine rebounds, seven on the offensive glass, as Ohio outrebounded Bowling Green 43-26.

Scott Thomas scored 17 points to lead the Falcons (13-12, 7-5), who won 67-57 on Jan. 7.
