Women's Basketball: What to know about Cincinnati

To say Ohio is not where it thought it would be after two games would be a significant understatement. After a blowout loss to Notre Dame and a close loss to Liberty in which Ohio consistently shot itself in the foot, it sits at 0-2 and needs to get things turned around quickly.

Ohio’s next chance to do so will be against Cincinnati in Fifth Third Arena for its third straight road game to begin the season.
