Athens – After an unlucky weekend during which Ohio got swept in consecutive regulation games for just the second time in the last two years, the Bobcats aren’t changing much in their game plan for a similar type of opponent this weekend.
Ohio will look to capitalize on its opportunities more frequently when it plays University of Nevada Las Vegas this weekend at Bird Arena.
It will be the first meeting between the two teams because UNLV entered the American Collegiate Hockey Association D1 this season
