Jones leads ODU, but missed free throws cost Panthers win

Oberlin’s Morgan Jones led Ohio Dominican with a team-high 17 points, but the Panthers missed 13 of 17 free throws and couldn’t hang on to a first half lead, falling 78-69 to Lake Superior State in a GLIAC game Thursday night.

The Panthers fell to 4-13 (1-10 GLIAC) with the defeat.

Ohio Dominican was able to trim the lead to four points on a pair of occasions in the opening five and a half minutes of the second half. Kapron’s turnaround jumper kept ODU within five at 49-44 at the 12:37 mark, but LSSU took over from that point, scoring the next seven points to build a 56-44 advantage with 10:43 left. The lead remained above eight until the 1:56 mark when Jones buried a jumper from the free throw line to make it 67-61. The Lakers answered with a three on their next possession, though, and ODU could not challenge down the stretch.

Jones led five Panthers in double figures with 17 on 8 of 14 shooting. Oberlin native Aaron Gibbs also had his third double-double in the past four games with 10 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.
