The 2012–13 Ohio Bobcats men's basketball team represented Ohio University during the 2012–13 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The Bobcats, led by first year head coach Jim Christian, played their home games at the Convocation Center and were members of the East Division of the Mid-American Conference. They finished the season 24–10, 14–2 in the East Division to claim a share of the East Division and MAC overall regular season championship with Akron.
