What to Know

We’ve got another exciting Mid American matchup on schedule as the Ohio Bobcats and the Kent State Golden Flashes are set to tip at 6:30 p.m. ET on January 26th at Memorial Athletic & Convocation Center. Ohio is hoping to put an end to a seven-game streak of away losses dating back to last season.

After soaring to 85 points the game before, Ohio faltered in their matchup on Tuesday. They fell 67-58 to the Zips. The result shouldn’t come as a shock considering that’s the fewest points Ohio has scored all season.

Ohio struggled to work together and finished the game with only seven assists. That’s the fewest assists they’ve managed all season.

Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Kent State ultimately got the result they hoped for on Tuesday. They walked away with a 90-84 win over the Falcons. Having run the score up that high, both teams probably have some extra defensive drills coming up.

The Bobcats now have a losing record at 9-10. As for the Golden Flashes, they now have a winning record of 10-9.

Fans should be in for an exciting game on Friday as the two teams are among the highest scoring teams in the league right now.
