COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio Dominican men's basketball team is looking to snap its current four-game losing streak and get a win in the team's final home game of its first season in the GLIAC, as the Panthers host Ashland on Senior Night this Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
ODU lost its most recent matchup against Tiffin, 89-87, in a back-and-forth game that included 11 ties and 14 lead changes. Tiffin took advantage of a hot shooting day, hitting 56.7 percent of their field goals and 60 percent from behind the arc. The Dragons outscored ODU in the paint, 42-28, and earned 15 second-chance points. The Panthers last tied the game 87-87 with 28 seconds remaining in the game, but lost after Tiffin took a two-point lead on a baseline jumper with 2.5 seconds left.
Jake Mochoskay led the way for the Panthers with a career-high 27 points, while shooting 9-of-14 from the field and making 6-of-11 three point attempts. The six threes also set a career-high for Mochoskay. The offensive output was the highest point total recorded by a Panther since Bryan West scored 35 points at Shawnee State on February 17, 2009. Morgan Jones contributed 18 points and Zak Kapron added 11 points to join the double-digit scoring club. Career-highs were also set by Aaron Gibbs, who tallied seven assists, and Jackson, who recorded nine rebounds.
Ashland enters the game with a record of 12-12 (6-11, GLIAC), and is currently on a three-game losing streak. The Eagles are led by Kale Richardson, who is averaging 14.5 points and seven rebounds per game.
