ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio University has hired North Dakota State's Saul Phillips as its men's basketball coach.

Phillips led the Bison to an upset of fifth-seeded Oklahoma in the NCAA tournament last month. He was 134-84 in seven seasons at North Dakota State.

Phillips was hired Sunday to replace Jim Christian, who left after two years to coach Boston College. Christian was 49-22 at Ohio.
