ADA - Deonte Holder had 24 points and Keith Mackie scored 22 for Heidelberg but it wasn't enough to overcome five Ohio Northern players scoring double figures as the Polar Bears trounced the Student Princes, 96-86, in the King Horn Center.
Heidelberg led midway through the first half, 21-19, on three Mike Petrie free throws. But a 10-0 run by ONU (13-9, 9-6 Ohio Athletic Conference) put the Polar Bears in front for good. Heidelberg, which fell to 5-17 overall with a 1-14 mark in the OAC, trailed by seven at half, 45-38, but could get no closer than five the rest of the way.
Branden Rushton led all scorers with 26 points. Isaiah Roux had 20 points and Jared Horstman tossed in 14. Jordan Martin scored 13 off the bench and Dominique Royal added the cheese with 10 points.
Heidelberg had solid bench scoring with nine points each from Jackson Blue, Mason Willeke and Frank Longhino.
