ATHENS (AP) — Nick Kellogg scored 13 points and three teammates scored in double digits Saturday as Ohio dominated Evansville in an 81-59 win.

Ricardo Johnson and Javarez Willis each scored 12 for Ohio (6-1) and Travis Wilkins added 10. Kellogg scored three 3-pointers and the Bobcats outshot the Aces 48.4 percent from the field to 37.7 percent.

Egidijus Mockevicius led Evansville (5-2) with a game-high 19 points and 9 rebounds and D.J. Balentine added 15 points.

Mockevicius scored four quick points but Ohio went on a 7-point first-half run and raced away, leading 42-26 at halftime. Evansville’s defense stiffened in the second half and the Aces at one point scored 10 unanswered points, but Ohio dominated, winning the rebound battle 40-31 and making 11 of 14 free-throw attempts.

Ohio now has won four straight games. Kellogg needs just 21 points to become the 36th 1,000-point scorer in Ohio history.
