Women's Basketball: A second glance at Bowling Green

With just six games to go in the regular season, Ohio is currently on the outside looking in at the Mid-American Conference Tournament.

Fortunately for the Bobcats, five of those six games are against teams that they are directly competing with for the final spots, beginning with a rematch against Bowling Green on Saturday.

Bowling Green since Game 1

Since its loss to Ohio on Jan. 22, Bowling Green is 5-4 in the MAC and has not had a streak of either wins or losses longer than two games.

The Falcons are, along with the Bobcats, looking for a chance to clinch one of the remaining spots in the MAC Tournament.

Player to Watch

Sharps – Sharps is the Falcons’ best 3-point shooter, knocking down 46% of her attempts. Given the issues that the Bobcats have had recently defending excellent 3-point shooters, notably Western Michigan’s Lauren Ross and Toledo’s Sophia Wiard, Sharps will likely have plenty of opportunities to score Saturday.
