Saul Phillips enters his third season as the head coach of the Ohio men's basketball program in 2016-17. Ohio posted 23 victories in 2015-16 -- including an 11-7 mark in Mid-American Conference play. The 2015-16 Ohio squad matched the 1998-99 team for the biggest turnaround in program history. The Bobcats improved by 13 wins under Phillips after posting just 10 victories in 2014-15. The 2015-16 Bobcats matched the 1982-83 team for the sixth-most wins in a single season in program history. This will be the Bobcats first appearance in the Gildan Charleston Classic.
