The BG women’s basketball team logged another conference victory Saturday afternoon over Central Michigan by a score of 70-50.

“I was ecstatic with our win today,” said head coach Curt Miller. “I thought we thoroughly dominated and our starters had a great game and we came out of half-time with a big lead and added to that.”

The game’s high scorer was BG forward Ali Mann with 16 points. Forward Carin Horne was close behind with 12.

Helping the offense out was guard Kate Achter with seven assists. Achter was back into her normal game on Saturday and everyone present in the arena could feel her emotion that afternoon.

“She led us today,” said Coach Miller.

Achter took on another role Saturday when she and Jasmine McCall were on the court at the same time. McCall took over at point guard while Achter moved out to shooting guard.

“I had two pretty good days of practice,” said Achter. “We experimented a little bit, moving me to [shooting guard] and got my confidence back up going to the basket and attacking.”

It was a fast pace game for the Falcons and the Chippewas just couldn’t seem to keep up. Bowling Green scored a total of 19 points on the fast break to Central Michigan’s four.

On the defensive end, Lindsey Goldsberry’s eight rebounds led the Falcons. BG won the rebounding battle 46-34. The Falcons also scored 18 second chance points while the Chippewas only scored four.

For Central Michigan, Candice Wilson led with 15 points making 3-of-4 three-pointers. Britni Houghton added 11 points and Ann Scufka scored seven.
