TOLEDO-- Stan Joplin's 200th career coaching victory was a struggle. The Rockets trailed Ohio at halftime by 12. They were back to within four on two occasions and actually never led the game.
Till the end. A steal by Jon Amos in the final seconds set up the go ahead free throws by Ty Kent. Still, the Bobcats had one final shot at the buzzer before Toledo could claim the 54-52 victory.
It was their 19th straight MAC victory at Savage Hall.
