  • Books I’ve Loved Recently
    By Jay Grummel In the fall my TBR (to be read) shifts from Fantasy to Literary Fiction. I’ve become a mood reader in my college years. Something about the coldness of the fall and winter influences the sadness of the books I’m reading. Recently, a few novels I deem to best of my 2023 reads. […]
  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]

Falcons face Braves Saturday

Going into this weekend’s matchup between Bowling Green and the Bradley Braves, the Falcons hope to do something they didn’t in their 76-66 loss at Anderson Arena Wednesday – playing 40 minutes of solid basketball.

After a strong first half that saw the Falcons leading by five they came out of the second half flat and never recovered.

It is a fate the Falcons don’t want to repeat.

Something that may help BG is the possible return of senior Steven Wright, who has been sidelined all season while recovering from a broken foot. Although his return is far from likely he has started jogging in practices and gets closer to full recovery.

Much more likely is more minutes and a bigger impact from the Falcons sweet shooting Serbian Dusan Radivojevic. Radivojevic played only 13 minutes in his first action of the season against Oakland and went 0-2 from the floor – both three pointers. However, he was also able to provide two assists and two steals in limited action.

“These guys are back on the court, it was nice to have guys back on the court, really nice,” said coach Dan Dakich.

Other than the team getting healthier they also must play smarter. The Falcons are averaging 18 turnovers per game, including 19 against Oakland.

Last season the Falcons easily handled Bradley, 81-65, but this year isn’t the same matchup because these aren’t the same Falcons. Unfortunately, it largely is the same Braves squad.

“The guys that hurt us the most last year are back, and the guys that we hurt them the most with aren’t,” said Dakich.

The Braves are led by seniors Marcellus Sommerville, Lawrence Wright and Tony Bennett.

Against BG last year Wright led the Braves with 16 points to go with seven rebounds and two blocks.

“Bradley is a really difficult place to play, just a hard-core basketball school,” said Dakich earlier in the week. “I haven’t really watched them so I don’t know a lot about them other than they are very athletic.”
