The Ohio Bobcats lost for the first time in more than a month on Monday night.
After nine straight wins, the Bobcats figured to make it 10 in a row as they hosted the Robert Morris Colonials. Instead, the leaders of the Northeast Conference shocked the Bobcats 70-67 at Convocation Center in Athens, Ohio.
Ohio had not previously lost since falling 59-54 to the Louisville Cardinals on Nov. 25. The Cardinals are now 12-2 and ranked No. 10 in the country. Meanwhile, the Bobcats are also now 12-2.
The Bobcats had won nine straight, and five in a row by at least eight points. The 67 points scored is the fewest by Ohio since they beat the Morgan St. Bears 61-53 on Dec. 3.
The game marks the first home loss of the season as well for Ohio, as they fall to 7-1 at Convocation Center. Morris St. improves to 11-4 with the win.
The Bobcats now have a few days off before they take on the 6-7 Bowling Green Falcons on Saturday.
