After hitting its lowest point of what has thus far been a disappointing season in Monday’s loss to Miami, Ohio (8-5, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) will look to get back on track as it hosts Bowling Green (7-6, 2-2 MAC) this weekend.

Bowling Green has won two in a row against Ohio, its most recent being a 69-53 win Feb. 6, 2021. This has been a major reversal of the past, as Ohio had won the previous 11 matchups.
This will be the Falcons’ first visit to The Convo in almost two years, which was also the last time the Bobcats came away with a victory.
Ohio and Bowling Green have traded winning streaks for most of the history of their matchup, so Ohio will be trying to stop Bowling Green from starting another long streak.
Player to Watch
Cece Hooks is, unsurprisingly, close to reaching another major career milestone. If she scores 19 points against Bowling Green, she would become the all-time leading scorer in the history of the MAC, among both men and women. She will also be honored at Saturday’s game for becoming Ohio’s all-time leading scorer during last week’s game against Central Michigan.
