It should be a fun game. Both teams averaged over 80 points apiece last season. Toledo lost two of their best players from a year ago, so it will also be a chance to get a sneak peak at the Rockets new look.
The Oilers are picked to win their conference and I wouldn’t be surprised if there are quite a few fans in attendance. It’s a 45 minute drive down I 75 for Toledo fans. It’s the rare chance for Findlay fans to see a division 1 team on their home court.
100% of ticket sales go to hurricane relief. Tip-off is at 8 p.m.
