  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

Bowling Green men’s basketball (3-3) broke out of their offensive slump and ended their three-game losing streak, dominating Lipscomb (4-3) 82-61 on Saturday night in the Northern Classic.  

FIRST HALF  

While Lipscomb struck first with a layup, the Falcons jumped out to an early 10-7 lead after four minutes, making four of their first six shots, two of which were three-pointers.   

BG would continue the momentum, with senior forward Rashaun Agee making a layup to cap a 9-0 run by the Falcons, giving them the 16-7 lead with 13:43 remaining in the first half.   

BGSU held the Bisons scoreless for over three minutes, with a three-pointer by junior guard Marcus Hill pushing BG’s lead to double figures, 23-13 with 9:36 remaining in the half.    

The Falcons stayed hot, hitting six of their next seven shots to extend their lead to 36-23 with just over three minutes remaining in the first half.   

Senior guard DaJion Humphrey hit a three-pointer at the end of the first half, giving BG a 22-point advantage, leading 45-23 after 20 minutes.    

The Falcons ended the first half on an 11-0 run, holding Lipscomb scoreless for the last 3:48 of the first half.   

BGSU shot 69% (20-29) from the field and 50% (5-10) from beyond the arc in the half, while holding Lipscomb to just 31% (9-29) from the field and 27.3% (3-11) from three-point range.   

Hill led the charge in the highest-scoring first half for the Falcons this season, tallying 16 points in 20 minutes, shooting 7-10 from the field and 2-4 from beyond the arc in the half.  

SECOND HALF  

The Falcons continued the scoring to start the second half, with senior center Sam Towns converting a three-point play to extend BG’s lead to 48-23.  

BG extended their lead to 57-28 with 16:30 remaining after Hill made back-to-back shots, giving him 20 points in the game.  

Lipscomb held BGSU scoreless for over three minutes, cutting the Orange and Brown’s advantage down to 59-41 with just under 12 minutes remaining.   

The Bisons went on a 9-0 run and held the Falcons scoreless for over three minutes, leaving BG with just a 12-point advantage, 62-50 with just over eight minutes remaining.  

However, the Falcons caught fire again, pushing their lead back to 20 points, 76-56 with just over three minutes remaining.  

While Lipscomb outscored BG in the second half 38-37, the Falcons finished the game strong to secure the 21-point victory.  

REVIEW OF THE GAME  

The Falcons dominated from start to finish, breaking out of the offensive slump they had been in for the past three games.  

The Orange and Brown shot 60.3% (35-58) from the field and 55.6% (10-18) from beyond the arc.   

On the flip side, BG held Lipscomb to just 39.7% (25-63) shooting from the field and 24% (6-25) from three-point range.  

The Falcons also outrebounded the Bisons 35 to 30. However, BG committed three more personal fouls and one more turnover than Lipscomb.
