The Ohio Bobcats cannot claim a No. 2 overall ranking in the country or a preseason All-American like the Ohio State Buckeyes, but like their in-state counterparts, the Bobcats have just one loss this season.

Trifle comparisons aside, Ohio ran over the woefully overmatched Marietta Pioneers 86-54 on Wednesday evening at the Convocation Center in Athens, and in the process improved to 8-1.

D.J. Cooper led Ohio with 15 points and 7 assists and made 3-6 three-pointers, while starting backcourt mate Nick Kellogg made 4-5 three-pointers of his own for 12 points on a very efficient offensive night for the Bobcats.

A win against a school such as Marietta will not do much to raise Ohio's profile, but it should be noted that the Bobcats' only loss this season was a close, 59-54 decision to the now No. 4 Louisville Cardinals.

Next, Ohio travels to take on the 4-6 Wright St. Raiders on Saturday.
