Ohio State loses another championship game. This time it's the MIVA final to IPFW in Columbus. The 10th ranked Mastodons are hot having won their last 6 matches 3 to 0. The Final Four will be held in Columbus this year and it is now the fourth year in a row that the host of the MIVA tourney has lost.
The game was broadcast on CSTV and there were a decent amount of IPFW fans at the game, although it was sparce overall. The experts aren't expecting IPFW to actually win the Final Four this year but they do benefit from having five starters who played in last year's Final Four, and they have gained some confidence in Columbus, which they will need when the dominating West Coast teams come to Ohio.
