Meanwhile, the Bobcats’ most recent game was an 88-79 defeat against Bowling Green, dropping them to 0-2 in MAC play.

In the MAC preseason basketball poll, Ohio was picked to finish in second place, just behind Ball State. The Buckeyes shot 44.3% from the field and 10-for-21 from 3-point range, but they couldn’t secure the defensive stops they needed to win on the road.

The Bobcats put up 77.2 points on 45.5% shooting, including 36.5% from deep. The Buckeyes grab an average of 36.4 boards per game, good for 32nd in the nation.
According to the Mid-American Conference preseason poll, Ball State was predicted to finish in fourth place. The Cardinals have not been defeated since early December, establishing themselves as genuine MAC title candidates.
Ball State overcame a one-point halftime deficit to defeat Akron by 7. BSU made 39.7 percent of their field goal attempts, making 3 of 14 threes and 21 of 28 free throws. The Cards outrebounded Akron 37-33 and had 17 offensive boards, while also causing the Zips to turn the ball over 17 times. The team was led by Payton Sparks, a sophomore center who scored 15 points and grabbed eight boards.
The winning streak for Ball State might come to an end against Ohio. The Bobcats outscore their opponent by a wide margin, have five or more players who can consistently put up double-digit points every game, and take better care of the ball than their rival.
