  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]

Men’s and women’s basketball teams sweep Sunday’s doubleheader

WOMEN: Bowling Green 77, St. Bonaventure 59

The men’s basketball team climbed back to .500 last night as they dispatched the Detroit Titans 58-38.

Bowling Green was in control throughout, as they watched their first half lead stretch all the way to 17 points.

It wasn’t a case of an offensive explosion for the Falcons, but rather a case of locking down on defense.

“We worked a lot on handling pressure, being in touch with the ball, rebounding,” said senior guard Brian Moten.

All the hard work in practice leading up to the game paid significant dividends. Through all of these aspects, BG was able to hold Detroit to a 22.7 field goal percentage for the game, including a 17.4 field goal shooting percentage in the first half.

A major contributor to Detroit’s offensive woes was the play of BG on the boards.

“We need our guards to rebound,” head coach Louis Orr said, adding, “We out rebounded them by 21.”

Last night was the first time in Detroit’s eight games this season that they’ve been out rebounded.

In out rebounding the Titans, the Falcons gave them only 10 offensive rebounds, and only seven second chance points the entire game.

In fact, when Detroit shot, BG came down with almost three quarters of the rebounds (29-10).

Leading the way on the boards was BG’s point guard Joe Jakubowski, with nine.

The Falcons led by 15 at the half, but no doubt had memories of their recent blown lead to Savannah State.

“Maybe something good will happen, maybe I’ll get married, then I’ll get over Savannah State,” Moten said.

This time, BG came out for the second half looking aggressive, going on a 12-0 run.

Nine of those twelve points came by way of the three point shot as Moten, Jakubowski and Darryl Clements all knocked down shots from deep.

After that though, the Falcons began playing less aggressively, and would only score eight points in the next nine minutes.

“They’re a very scrappy team,” Moten said.

In those nine minutes that BG began to play conservatively, Detroit was able to bring the game back to within 10.

Then the Falcons found their aggressiveness once again. Nate Miller led the Falcons on a 10-0 run to end the game, and even dunked for the games final points. His final score provided a fitting exclamation point on the game for BG.
