BG is 21-9 on the year, enough for second place in the MAC East behind Akron. Not only have the Falcons’ seniors had a successful senior campaign, but their play throughout their four years has helped cement them in the school’s record books.

The Falcons went up late (54-53) on a three-pointer by junior Jillian Halfhill.

The Broncos shot 50 percent from the field, going 22 of 44. Western Michigan also shot 36 percent from behind the three-point arc, as sophomore A.J. Johnson hit two big ones.

BG played well on the boards, outrebounding Western 41-36. The Falcons also forced the Broncos in to 20 turnovers for the game, including 16 steals. with six from Jillian Halfhill.

This time around the game figures to be much different as it will be on a neutral site instead of the confines of WMU’s University arena. The Falcons are also currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak. BG had won those games by an average of 20 points per game.

BG has had success against the lower teams in the MAC. During the Falcons four game winning streak, they have beaten Akron, Buffalo and Kent State, which are teams that have a combined conference record of 10-38. The Broncos are currently 7-10 in conference and 11-19 overall.

Western Michigan is coming off its win against Eastern Michigan, putting up 80 points in its first round game. The Broncos had two players score at least 20 points and were 45.9 percent from the field. The Eagles shot just above 40 percent, scoring 72 points.
