Ohio's NCAA hopes ended with 65-46 loss to Akron

D.J. Cooper didn't make a single shot. He didn't make any excuses, either. Ohio's star guard, the Mid-American Conference's Player of the Year, missed all eight shots from the field and had one of the worst games of a brilliant four-year career Saturday night as the Bobcats were beaten 65-46 by Akron in the MAC championship. Cooper was knocked off his game by a...

Cooper Breaks Records, and Bulls’ Hearts Again

DJ Cooper made NCAA history Tuesday night (photo/SBnation) When Javon McCrea blocked D.J. Cooper’s layup with 6:42 left in their MAC battle Tuesday night, it felt as if the power had shifted and McCrea was going to snatch the conference player-of-the-year honors away from the senior point guard.  But then Cooper put McCrea back in the passenger seat, grabbed the wheel, and floored...

How Athens, Ohio became a basketball town

ATHENS, Ohio Dan Lowe and D.J. Cooper never met. By all indications, they never were in the same place or had reason to believe their paths would cross. Still, there's little doubt that tonight, when Ohio University thinks it could set a new standard with more than 5,000 frenzied students in the Convocation Center for a Wednesday basketball game, would never have happened without...

Cooper is likely to become the first player in the history of Division I college basketball to collect 2,000 points...

Ohio U goes dancing into the NCAA Tourney

Ohio University guard D.J. Cooper took the ball behind the 3-point line, closely guarded. With the seconds on the shot clock waning down, he drove, stopped, ducked his shoulder underneath Nikola Cvetinovic and threw the ball up, hoping for a foul. Then the ball went in anyway.
