Volleyball: Ohio needs to win in critical home stretch

The Bobcats return to The Convo this weekend after their toughest road stretch of the season. They’re on a four game losing streak – two of which came against Mid-American Conference East Division opponents.

The Bobcats (13-12, 5-7 MAC) are now tied for fourth with Kent State and Buffalo in the East Division. All are at risk of losing a spot in the MAC Tournament. Ohio has four matches left this season and they’re all at home. The remaining matches carry significant weight because the Bobcats need to secure a spot in the tournament and separate themselves from the bottom of the standings.
