The third edition of the Battle of the Bricks was the most important of the season. After splitting the two regular season meetings, the Ohio Bobcats took a 74-48 victory on Friday in the Mid-American Conference Tournament semi-finals.
The No. 2-seed Bobcats have excelled defensively, and it was the same against the third-seeded RedHawks at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
