Players to watch

Ohio (8-4-0) is back at Bird Arena this weekend after its 3-2 win on Nov. 18 at Miami. Indiana (17-2-0) is coming to Athens on a nine-game win streak. Indiana is an offensive powerhouse led by Ithan Delorenzo and Ben Rosenberg. Aidan Simoneau leads the Hoosiers in goals with 18. 

Indiana averages over five goals a game this season. This is no surprise, given that they have five players with 20-plus points this season. Matthew Zazon and the Ohio defense will have to do their best to minimize these offensive threats. The Indiana offense is only part of the challenge for the Bobcats. The Hoosiers' defense has kept opposing teams to three goals or less in 13 games this season. The team's starting goalie, Sammy Bilis, comes into the weekend with 328 saves this season. The other Hoosier goalies have rarely seen the ice this season. It will be a challenge, but a win in either game this weekend would be a statement win for the Bobcats.
