Athlete of the week

Tene Lewis is not a scoring threat. She’s only averaging 1.9 points per game. In the women’s baskeball team’s 66-62 win over Toledo on Saturday, the guard was held scoreless.

But that didn’t keep Falcons coach Curt Miller from saying that she was the game’s most valuable player.

Lewis has become the Falcons designated defensive stopper. She led the team with three steals on Saturday, and also got key rebounds that helped to set up some three point shots.

Lewis has 23 steals this season. Miller has called her an unselfish player, whose main job is to set up plays for others. Lewis has 26 assists on the season.

The victory over was BG’s first win in four Mid-American Conference games, improving their record to 10-10 on the season, and 3-6 in the MAC.

Lewis and the Falcons look to improve on their conference record tonight when they travel to Buffalo to take on the Bulls at 7 p.m.
