In the second round of the round-robin Marques Maybin classic, our Fighting Cardinals take on the Bobcats of Ohio University. The 3-2 Bobcats lost to Lamar after U of L smashed Indiana State. Frankly, U of L should do the same against the Bobcats. A first year-coach and a lack of size and depth, and then your have to come into Freedom Hall; things don't look promising for OU. There is always the chance that U of L lets one of the scrubs go Travis Diener on us because four starters are shooting better than 40% from behind the arc. This team makes their free throws too, so we better hope the refs let the game be played and not won at the charity stripe. The Cards just have to stop Jerome Tilman and wear down their opponents, then Ohio's lack of depth will give the game to the good guys. UofL 89-55.
