    SBU Last Time OutSt. Bonaventures Andrew Nicholson became the 38th player in school history to score 1,000 career points but Niagaras Anthony Nelson poured in a game-high 24 to lead the Purple Eagles (3-7) to a 69-61 win over the Bonnies (5-3) Dec. 11 at the Reilly Center. DaQuan Cook tallied his second double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 boards, Ogo Adegboye finished with 12 points and Mike Davenport 11. After traditional 3-point plays from Cook and Demitrius Conger powered a 13-4 run to tie the game at 42 at the 12:30 mark of the final stanza, Niagara responded with nine unanswered to stay in front and help snap its five-game losing streak.

    Next GameThe Bonnies travel to Rochester, N.Y. to take on ACC foe Virginia Tech at Blue Cross Arena Dec. 23. The two teams have not met on the hardwood since Nov. 22, 2002 and the Hokies, a member of the Atlantic 10 from 1995-2000, own a 9-5 edge in 14 previous meetings. VT is currently 5-3 and plays Mississippi State on Saturday in Paradise Island, Bahamas before returning to the states to square off against St. Bonaventure. The MatchupDefending MAC tournament champion Ohio visits the Reilly Center in head coach Mark Schmidts 100th game on the Bona bench. The Bobcats earned the No. 14 seed into last seasons NCAA Championship and bounced No. 3 Georgetown in the opening round before falling to Tennessee. Picked for first in the MACs East division ahead of Kent State, the Bobcats are also picked to repeat as tournament champion.

    last four games. The Bobcats defeated Saint Francis (Pa.) 87-58 on Wednesday night and return three starters and eight letterwinners from last years squad. 2010 MAC Rookie of the Year D.J. Cooper (18.1 pts) ranks ninth nationally in assists per game (6.5) and tenth in steals (2.7), and DeVaughn Washington (9.9 pts, 5.8 rebs) pace the Bobcats offense. Ivo Baltic grabs an average 6.0 rebounds, while 3-point threat Tommy Freeman (23-of-55) has stretched the defense from the perimeter.

    How They Got HereThe team played its first four at home and got off to a 3-1 start, before posting a 3-3 record over the next six games. Ohio has played nearly as many games at home (7) as St. Bonaventure has overall (8), but the Bobcats are just 1-2 in games away from Athens, including a loss to No. 6 Kansas in Las Vegas, Nev.

    Head Coach: Joe GroceLast year, in just his third season at OU, Groce became the fifth coach to lead Ohio to the NCAA Tournament in its 103-year history. A stirring run through the MAC featured an overtime win on the road in the first round, a toppling of regular-season champion Kent State in the quarterfinals, a victory over archrival Miami in the semifinals and capped with another overtime victory against the defending conference champs, Akron. Ohio advanced the to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2005 and third time in the last 20 years. The 13-seeded Bobcats faced 4-seed Georgetown and knocked off the Hoyas, 97-83. It was Ohios first win against a nationally-ranked program since 1998 and advanced them into the NCAA Second Round for the first time since 1983. Groce is 43-36 in his three years at Ohio.

    Bonnies vs. the MACSt. Bonaventure is 33-22 against current members of the MAC: Akron (0-1), Bowling Green (2-3), Buffalo (3-1), Eastern Michigan (1-2), Kent State (14-7), Northern Illinois (1-1), Ohio (5-3) and Toledo (7-4). St. Bonaventure has not won a game against a MAC opponent since Dec. 31, 2002, when the Bonnies defeated visiting Toledo 94-68.

    Series SnapshotThe Bonnies own a 5-3 advantage in eight previous meetings with the Bobcats. St. Bonaventure won the first five meetings interspersed between 1962-63 and 2001 and has fallen in each of the last three. The Bonnies are 4-1 at home all-time versus the Bobcats.

    #100 for SchmidtNow entering his fourth season at St. Bonaventure, head coach Mark Schmidt will coach his 100th game at SBU against the Bobcats. Schmidts .430 (43-56) win percentage at SBU is the highest by a Bonnies mentor since current Rhode Island coach Jim Barons .502 (132-131) mark compiled from

    1992-01. Schmidt and Baron are the only two coaches to post a win-loss percentage over .400 since the start of the 1987 season.

    1,000 for #44St. Bonaventures Andrew Nicholson became the 38th player in school history to score 1,000 career points in the loss to Niagara. After missing his first attempt and being held scoreless over the first 11:56, the junior Mississauga native drained a foul-line jumper to move past the barrier in just his 66th game. Nicholson was a shoe size away from recording his 1,000th career point in comeback fashion in his previous outing against St. Johns, as his stepback jumper was originally thought to be a 3-pointer.

    Double DownRS-Junior DaQuan Cook who wore #21 last season posted his second double-double of the year last Saturday against the Purple Eagles. Cook hauled in 10 boards and scored 11 points in that game after a 21-point, 13-rebound effort helped the Bonnies cruise past Binghamton Nov. 21. So far this season, the Bonnies have 10 double doubles from four different players: Nicholson (5), Conger (2), Cook (2), Adegboye (1). Nicholsons streak of four straight double doubles is curently tied for second in the country.

    Climbing the ChartsNicholson is climbing the St. Bonaventure career records list in his third season. The Mississauga, Ont. native is the schools career leader in FG% (.576 tied with Bob Lanier), ranks third in blocks (149), and now sits in 38th on the all-time scoring list with 1,016 points. With 27 more rebounds, he will become the 22nd player in school annals to post 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in a career. His next rejection will make him the third player ever at St. Bonaventure with at
