Iona came out flat in the Chanticleers game, putting up 26 points in the first half—though they did get it going with 58 in the second (and allowed 57). As for the Bobcats, they’ve been hanging in there for the most part and gained some momentum with that tense 4OT win over Indiana State. I like Ohio to keep it going here and cover.
