Batavia, OH Ė On Saturday the Barons were unable to hold off UC Clermont, going down 74 to 69. The loss drops the Barons back to .500 on the year as they continue to go back and forth with that number over the past couple weeks.
Brent Cook (Spencerville) scored 16 to lead the way for the Barons, while Jordan Swift (Shawnee) also added 12. However, it just wasnít enough to keep pace with the Cougars and the 24 point effort of Shawn Yates.
The Barons hope to again climb above .500 when they travel to take on The Ohio State University Newark Campus on January 5th. The Barons got the best of the Titans in their first matchup, winning 100 to 96 in a very exciting back and forth game. The Barons donít return home until January 9th, when they will take on Miami University of Hamilton at the Hangar in Cook Hall. Tip off is set for 7:30pm for the men and 5:30pm for the women.
Come out and support the Barons! Admission is free for all OSU and Rhodes State students.
