Ohio will play its second straight home game Wednesday as it welcomes Kent State to The Convo. The Bobcats (9-5, 7-4 Mid-American Conference) are on one of their best stretches of the season with four wins in the last five games. Kent State (5-2, 4-0 MAC) is itching for a chance to play after having its last five games postponed. The Golden Flashes haven’t taken the court for a game since Jan. 9.
The teams have played once already this year in December. Kent State took a four-point win despite giving up 29 points to Erica Johnson and 23 to CeCe Hooks. Much has changed since the last meeting. Ohio is banged up and battle-tested, while Kent State will be well-rested and perhaps rusty.
