  • 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, […]

Moten, BG upset MAC’s top team

Who is this team?

That’s the question that men’s basketball fans will be asking themselves now. After losing to the worst team in the Mid-American Conference on Sunday, Eastern Michigan, BG 14-10 (8-4 MAC), pulled off a huge upset on the Buffalo Bulls last night in Buffalo, winning by a score of 59-48.

The win completes a season sweep of UB by the Falcons. BG opened up conference play back in early January with an 86-82 victory at home over UB as well.

Senior Brian Moten led the way for BG, turning in one of the most impressive performances of his career. Moten finished the game as the only Falcon in double figures in points, scoring 22.

Moten efforts were especially impressive because the Falcons five starters (Joe Jakubowski, Nate Miller, Chris Knight, Darryl Clements and Otis Polk) combined for 23 points.

BG jumped out to an early lead and took it into halftime, leading 37-22.

BG’s first-half shooting percentage was an incredibly impressive 56.0 percent, while Buffalo’s was a dismal 29.6.

For the game, BG shot 53.7 percent from the field while Buffalo only managed 34.0.

BG’s best offense came in the form of Moten shooting three pointers. He shot 6 of 9 for the game from deep.

The timing of this win is odd. The Falcons couldn’t have looked any worse their last time out against EMU. Now, thanks to last night, they’ve knocked off the conference’s top team.

BG is quickly transforming into one of the most frenetic teams in the conference. One game they can get beaten by the worse, the next they can knock off the best. It’s a style of play that coaches don’t usually like, but one that can definitely make things interesting in March.

The low point for the Falcons came in the form of Chris Knight. Knight left the game after just one minute of play and did not return. His status was unknown when The BG News went to print. If Knight is seriously hurt then the Falcons would likely put Moten in the starting lineup, where he is less comfortable.

Next up for the Falcons will be a matchup against Canisius on Saturday for an ESPN Bracket Busters game. The game wil be another case of the Falcons taking on a terrible team. They’ll need to win in order for the win over Buffalo to really stick.
