Poor Shooting Dooms Bobcats against Buffalo

Posted on:

The Bobcats dropped their first conference game of the season Wednesday when they fell to Buffalo 51-43.

The Bobcats trailed behind their competition throughout the game, never seeing the light of a lead; not once.

The two teams had near identical stats across the board. The obvious outlier being the difference between their field goal percentages. Ohio shot just 28 percent from the field while Buffalo shot 43 percent on the night. The inefficiency of Ohio’s offense against the Bulls proved to be its Achilles heel.

Kiyanna Black, Quiera Lampkins, and Hannah Boesinger were Ohio’s main offensive contributors, with 12, 11 and 8 points, respectively. Outside of those three, the Bobcats got little offensive production from anyone else. Six players scored six points or fewer.

Losing to Buffalo did not come at the fault of Ohio’s defense.  The team totaled 3 blocks, 10 steals, and 22 defensive rebounds.

Ohio will move forward to face NIU at home on Saturday.
