Men's Basketball: How to watch Ohio vs. Akron

It’s been a long time coming, but Ohio basketball is back in The Convo. 

When Ohio (11-6, 7-4 Mid-American Conference) battles Akron on Tuesday at 2 p.m., it’ll be the first time Ohio’s played since Feb.2. Due to COVID-19 tracing issues, the Bobcats had to postpone four consecutive games and still won’t be full-strength when the Zips come to town. 


Opponent: Akron (14-4, 12-3 MAC) 

Time: 2 p.m. 

Place: The Convo (Athens, Ohio) 

How to watch: ESPN3

Akron leads the all-time series 45-40 and has had the Bobcats’ number as of late, winning the last three meetings. Ohio was blown out by the Zips the last time the two teams faced. The 90-70 loss to Akron was one of Ohio’s worst of the season.
