Ohio Bobcats

Ohio barely managed to stay above .500 over their first 24 games, going 13-11 overall. The Bobcats went 5-2 in their next seven, beating Akron, Buffalo, Central Michigan, NIU and Bowling Green with losses otherwise to Miami-OH and Kent State. 

In the Thursday tournament matchup versus Ball State, Ohio stormed out to a 54-32 halftime edge. The Bobcats cruised on another 36 points from there and won 90-70. AJ Brown led the team on 28 points with seven rebounds and 5-of-10 made from 3-point range. 

Toledo Rockets 

Over on the Toledo side, they went a solid 18-6 over their first 24 games this year. The Rockets finished off the season with wins over Eastern Michigan, Miami-OH, Bowling Green, Akron, Buffalo, Central Michigan and Ball State. 

In the Thursday tournament matchup versus Miami-OH, Toledo didn’t have much trouble. The Rockets hit a 48-33 first-half advantage and cruised on 43 more points in a 91-75 win. EJ Farmer and Setric Millner each scored 19 points to lead the way. 


I’ll probably stay with Toledo in this one. That said, you could make a very good case for Ohio as well with the way they’ve been playing over the last two outings. The Rockets have been rolling in this calendar year, winning 16 straight games and scoring very well along the way. Toledo has hit 70 or more points in each of those victories. These teams last met back on January 17 at Savage Arena. Toledo ended up winning that one 90-75 after a 52-31 halftime lead. I like the Bobcats to be more competitive here, but ultimately I think the Rockets will pull out the cover. Should be a fun game to watch regardless.
