UT hoops split; Whitmer boys win

UT's Julius Brown gets rejected in the Rockets loss to Kent State

The afternoon started out great for the Toledo Rockets and their fans.

The women were victorious on the road over Buffalo, 77-75. Sophomore Andola Dortch lead with 18.

Things turned sour at night, however, as the men trailed by four at halftime to Kent State then couldn't seem to keep a handle on the ball as they fell 77-61. The Rockets had 19 turnovers in the game.

"I thought we hung our heads, I thought we felt sorry for ourselves...they out toughed us," said Rockets Head Coach Tod Kowalczyk.

Sophomore Rian Pearson had a team high 22 points.

On the high school front, Whitmer topped Massillon Washington 45-43.
