Athens, OH (Sports Network) - D.J. Cooper recorded 21 points for the Ohio University Bobcats as they handled the visiting Buffalo Bulls, 86-68, in a Mid-American Conference matchup at the Convocation Center.

Cooper made good on 5-of-6 three-point attempts and also dished out a game- high seven assists for the Bobcats (10-5, 1-0 MAC), who have won two in a row. Reggie Kelly was the only other Ohio player to score in double-figures with 19 points. Jon Smith led the team on the glass with seven rebounds coming off the bench.
