"Basketball fans across the nation witnessed the talent and relentless spirit of the Bobcats during Thursday night's game," Strickland said. "You can't help but feel pride in Ohio and Ohio University today. I wish the Bobcats and all of Ohio's men's and women's teams continued success in the tournament."
