Notes: Ohio leads the overall series 35-32. The Zips won the last game at Rhodes Arena 86-72 on Feb. 2. The Bobcats play well at home and have a 15-1 record there this season. A win would make the Zips the first team in Mid-American Conference history to start conference play 13-0, and a win would give the Zips a three-game lead in the MAC East.
