- 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.

Yaya Felder also has to continue to lead Ohio offensively and keep attacking the basket.
