Usually when playing well, the saying goes that for a team or player, ‘the lights shine down’ on them.

On Wednesday night, Bowling Green women’s basketball played really well, but the lights went out on them (literally).

Regardless, the Falcons (10-5 OVR, 4-1 MAC) defeated the Akron Zips 70-59, and now head south to Oxford to face the Miami RedHawks.

A preview of Miami:

Notable Box Facts:

  • Prior to being named the head coach at Miami on May 8, 2023, Box spent seven seasons with the Indiana Hoosiers, four of which as the associate head coach.
  • During Box’s time with the Hoosiers, they won 20 or more games in all seven of his seasons and earned seven postseason berths, including five NCAA Tournament appearances.
  • The Mid-American Conference is no stranger to Box, as he has spent two seasons at Akron as an assistant coach from 2012-2014.

  • Jada Scott (Sr.)- Scott is a 6’1 forward and graduate student from Townsend, GA.

Notable Numbers:
