We are the champions!

The Ohio men’s basketball team (21-10) earned the right to be part of March Madness '05 by defeating Buffalo 80-79 in overtime Saturday night in the finals of the Mid-American Conference Tournament. It is significant that while Ohio has made it to the NCAA tournament after 10 years, no other MAC teams were selected in the 65-team field this year, with Miami (OH) being a notable exception.

This coming Friday, the thirteenth-seeded Bobcats will play fourth-seeded Florida (23-7) in the first round of the Syracuse Regional portion of the NCAA Tournament. Historically, the Bobcats and the Gators are 1-1. The last time the two teams met was in 1978 when the Gators won 96-61 at home, with the previous game having won by the Bobcats 38-29 at home, way back in 1926-27.

Go Bobcats!
