Outlook: The Rockets carry a 10-game home winning streak into their MAC opener. Senior guard Nick Moore scored 13 of UT's 21 second-half points and finished with a team-high 18 in 35 minutes in Tuesday's narrow win over Siena, which whittled a 19-point deficit to two with less than three minutes to play. UT, which has won four straight against Ohio in Savage Hall, snapped a 19-game road losing streak in Athens last February by beating the Bobcats 69-68. East Division favorite Ohio beat Brown on Monday as Sonny Johnson scored 24 points. MAC player of the year candidate Brandon Hunter had 18 points and 11 rebounds after collecting 28 points and 11 boards in OU's 91-68 season-opening loss to Providence. Hunter leads OU in scoring (23.0 ppg) and rebounding (11.0 rpg).
