Ohio leads the Cardinals all-time 50-36 and has dominated the series as of late. The Bobcats have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two squads including the last meeting, a 78-68 Bobcat victory on Jan. 2 in Muncie. Mark Sears had a breakout performance in place of Jason Preston that game. With Preston back in the lineup, the Bobcats will be at full strength this time around against the Cardinals.
