Playing in the AM is nothing new for Bowling Green women’s basketball and on Tuesday this week, that will be no different for the orange and brown.

BGSU makes the trip down south to Dayton to face the Wright State Raiders on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 11 a.m.

Both teams come into the contest playing solid basketball, with the Raiders being winners of six of their last seven, while BGSU suffered only their second loss in seven games so far this season last Saturday against the nationally-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes.

  • The Raiders a season ago were ranked second in the country in made three-point field goals a game (10.1).
  • Hoffman joined the Raiders after serving as the head coach at Cedarville University for five seasons, where she won 106 games.
