Men’s Basketball Drops Fifth Straight in Loss to Queens

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – BGSU Men’s Basketball fell to the Queens University of Charlotte last night by a final score of 72-66.  

This game was a tale of two halves for the Falcons. They started the contest off slow, allowing the Royals to jump out to an early nine-point lead within 10 minutes of tip-off. They wouldn’t be able to recover for the rest of the first half, entering halftime down 40-29.  

Coming out of the break, the Falcons looked to buckle down a little. They held the Royals to 16 points and put up 26 of their own to bring the game within a single point a little past the halfway mark of the second half. However, BG could not capitalize on the little bits and pieces of momentum they found, allowing Queens to end the game on a 16-11 run, and ballooning the lead to as much as seven points at one point. Bowling Green shot 3-14 from the floor during the final 7:57 of the contest.  

The biggest story of the game for Bowling Green was their shooting. Overall, the team shot the ball 71 times while only finding the bottom of the net 27 times, a 38% clip. The team converted only 19% of their long balls, shooting 4-21 from distance. Compare that to Queens, who shot 48.1% from the field (26-54) and a whopping 41.2% from beyond the arc (7-17). 

Samari Curtis led the team in scoring, putting up 16 points (7-15) in the losing effort, while Chandler Turner led the team on the glass, securing eight boards.  

For the Royals, Senior Guard Kenny Dye continues his solid 2022 campaign, leading the team with 24 points, four rebounds, and a assist.  

Queens improves to 5-2 while picking up a huge win over a MAC opponent in their quest to win the ASUN Conference.  

With the loss, the Falcons fall to 2-5 on the young season after starting out 2-0, and have to wait until Saturday, Dec. 3 to try to get back into the win column when the Morgan State Bears come to the Stroh. This is Coach Huger’s second loss against an ASUN opponent in six contests, his last one coming in the 2021 College Basketball Invitational against Stetson.
