UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. – Ohio Dominican's men's basketball team had no answer for a high-octane Saginaw Valley offensive attack as the Panthers fell 102-64 to the Cardinals Saturday in GLIAC play.

The 102 points allowed were the most by the Panthers since ODU fell 120-114 to Malone on Dec. 18, 2004.

Junior guard Morgan Jones (Oberlin, Ohio) led ODU with 16 points and four steals, while senior forward Aaron Gibbs (Oberlin, Ohio) finished with 14 points and six rebounds.

SVSU scored the game's first six points as part of a 16-4 run to start the game and led by double figures the rest of the way. The Cardinals shot 65.1 percent (41-of-63) and were led by 35 points off the bench by Eli Redman, and SVSU also outrebounded ODU 41-22.

ODU fell to 3-16 (0-13 GLIAC), while SVSU improved to 10-9 (6-6 GLIAC).

The Panthers return home to face Ashland at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Alumni Hall.
