It was a tale of two halves at Bucyrus Saturday night, but in the end Ontario would survive an early deficit for a 49-37 victory.

The Warriors entered the game as the highest scoring team in the NCC, averaging 63 ppg, but would manage just 4 first quarter points and 14 for the first half. Ontario shot a dreadful 6-21 from the field and a meager 1-5 from the free throw line, while the Redmen converted 8-18 attempts to take a 22-14 advantage into the break.

In the third quarter the Warriors would start to put things together, out-doing their first half point total with 17 in the frame, fueled by a trio of triples from Wyatt Clemens. Ontario also held Bucyrus to 8 points in the third, giving them a 31-30 lead heading into the fourth. But the Warriors would put the game away with a 18-7 final quarter, securing their seventh consecutive win in the NCC.

Ontario finished 16-43 (37%) from the field, while the Redmen also shot 37% from the floor on 13-35 shooting. The Warriors won the rebounding battle however, 29-21, and forced Bucyrus into 13 turnovers to their 9.

Clemens finished with 12 points and 6 rebounds, teammate Cameron Mack posted a double-double with 20 pts and 15 reb's. Logan Plumley led the Redmen with 8 points, Brian Snouffer and Austin Williams each added 7.

The win puts Ontario at 11-4 for the season, 7-0 in the NCC. They will host red hot Buckeye Central next Saturday, fresh off their big win over Colonel Crawford. Bucyrus slips to 3-12 (2-7) and will host those Eagles on Saturday.
