Athens, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Javarez Willis scored a game-high 21 points as the Ohio Bobcats pulled out a 56-54 victory over the Wright State Raiders in the second round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament at the Convocation Center.

Willis knocked down 5-of-6 shots from 3-point range for Ohio (25-11), which will have to wait for other second round action to finish up before its next opponent is determined.
