DEKALB, Ill. -- Nick Kellogg scored 16 points, Maurice Ndour added 10 and Ohio cruised to a 65-46 victory Saturday night over Northern Illinois.

Down 25-24 at the break, Ohio opened the second half with a 23-12 run to take a 47-37 lead with 12:18 remaining. Northern Illinois then went nearly nine minutes without scoring, allowing the Bobcats to stretch their lead to 62-40 with 3:47 left.

Kellogg was 6 of 8 from the floor and hit four of five 3-pointers. Ndour made all four free throw attempts, and grabbed eight rebounds.

Ohio (13-4, 3-1 Mid-American) has won ten of its last 11 league road games, its best in program history.

Aaron Armstead and Travon Baker each scored 12 points to lead Northern Illinois (7-9, 1-3), who have lost three of their last four games.
