Athlete of the Week

Stefanie Wenzel is one of the most consistent scorers on the women’s basketball team. The Falcons’ guard is averaging 10.1 points per game and is one of BG’s strongest threats from behind the three-point line, hitting 88 baskets from long distance this season.

Wenzel had one of her strongest games of the season last Saturday against Akron. Wenzel was 9-16 from the floor in the game, and led the Falcons with a first half surge, scoring 16 points before the break. She finished with 20 points and the Falcons picked up their first road win in the Mid-American Conference, 65-62 over the Zips.

The win over Akron gave the Falcons a 4-9 record in the MAC, and 11-13 overall, as BG looks to improve its position in the MAC tournament.

Wenzel will look to continue her success tonight when the Falcons take on the Marshall Thundering Herd at Anderson Arena. The game will begin at 7 p.m.

The women’s team only has three games remaining on their schedule before beginning the MAC tournament.
