Things to know:

  • Central Michigan's offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency are both ranked last in the MAC. 
  • Both teams are 1-5 in the MAC, tied for last place. Every team in the conference now has at least one win and one loss.
  • Central Michigan has two top 25 scorers in the MAC: Sydney Harris and Bridget Utberg, who are averaging 16.5 and 11.3 points per game respectively. In Central Michigan's last game, Harris and Utberg had 26 and 15 points each. They were the only two on the team to score in double figures.

Keys to the game:

Central Michigan's offense runs through two players. If Ohio can limit their offensive output while maintaining a strong performance offensively for itself, Ohio should be able to put the game away in the second half. Yaya Felder also has to continue to lead Ohio offensively and keep attacking the basket.
