Keys to the game:
Ohio lost its last game in the third quarter against Western Michigan, a result that has been repeated throughout the season. For Ohio to sweep Miami, it will need to play a strong four quarters. In Ohio’s best offensive games this season, it has always shared the wealth. Yaya Felder is Ohio’s, and the MAC’s, leading scorer, but a win means a full team effort from Ohio.
