AP - Sports

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Jon Harris scored 14 points as 11th-seeded Miami (Ohio) snapped a nine-game losing streak in beating sixth-seeded Bowling Green 63-52 in the first round of the Mid-American Conference tournament Monday night.

The RedHawks (9-21) ended the regular season losers of 12 of their final 13 games, including a 52-44 loss to Bowling Green on Feb. 27, when they blew a 31-24 halftime lead.

Miami made amends Monday, expanding a 34-31 intermission edge with a 9-0 run to open the second period.

Bowling Green's later 9-0 run brought the Falcons (13-19) within 47-45, but Reggie Johnson's 3-pointer gave the RedHawks a 55-49 cushion with 1:40 left. Bowling Green trailed by at least five points the rest of the way.

Miami plays Wednesday at 9 p.m. in Cleveland against seventh-seeded Eastern Michigan.

The Falcons' A'uston Calhoun had 10 points and six rebounds, and now has 603 boards for his career.
