MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Teyvion Kirk scored 19 points with nine rebounds and Ohio used a big first half to beat Ball State 70-52 on Saturday for its first Mid-American Conference win this season.

Jason Carter added 13 points with nine boards and Doug Taylor scored 11. Jason Preston dished out eight assists.

Tayler Persons scored 16 points and K.J. Walton and Zach Gunn had 10 each with Trey Moses pulling down 13 rebounds.
