Hampton, Ball State flip the script in road win over Ohio

After Ball State’s (22-3, 11-1) Feb. 7 road loss to the Northern Illinois Huskies, head coach Brady Sallee chalked up the defeat to a random night of missed layups, missed 3-pointers and missed free throws. Saturday’s matchup against the Ohio Bobcats (7-16, 4-8 MAC) was the Cardinals’ first time back on the road since its loss against the Huskies. Through most of the first half, the game was taking on a similar storyline.
