(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Walsh looks to keep its four-game win streak going as it travels to the capital for a date with Ohio Dominican. The Cavaliers come in with a 13-4 record overall and are 6-4 in the conference. The Panthers are 10-7 overall and 5-6 in the GLIAC.
Walsh is coming off of a big road win at Hillsdale by a score of 79-77 where Trey Fletcher and Zac Carter combined for 58 points. Fletcher, the reigning GLIAC South Division Player of the Week, scored a game-high 32 points while Carter, the third-best scorer in the nation, poured in 26 points. None of Carter's buckets were more important than the final one that came with one second left and gave Walsh the win.
The Panthers are coming of a loss on the road at Findlay by a score of 72-69. They are led by Ronnie Williams who comes in with 13.2 points per game. Hasan Varence tops ODU in rebounds with 7.8 per game.
This is second-longest rivalry the Cavaliers have had in program history. Only Malone has faced the Maroon and Gold more than ODU. Walsh leads the all-time series with the Panthers 71-21.
