The Ohio Bobcats look for another win after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Ohio Bobcats are averaging 77.9 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 74.6 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Antonio Campbell is averaging 17.6 points and 10 rebounds while Jaaron Simmons is averaging 15.2 points and 7.8 assists. Kenny Kaminski is dishing 1.3 assists and Treg Setty is grabbing 4.9 rebounds.

This is actually a pretty good matchup, as both teams had solid seasons. However, when it comes down to it, Ohio is the slightly better team, as the Bobcats shoot the ball well from a high clip from deep and don't miss many free throws. Albany also doesn't have as much depth as the Bobcats.
I like the home team and the small number.
