  • Women in Horror for Halloween
    It’s that time of year again where the weather is starting to cool down and the Halloween decorations are being put out. For me once it hits end of September my TBR becomes nothing, but horror and thriller novels. As a big mood reader the seasons and holidays determine what I want to read next. […]
  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

BGSU women’s basketball to play ranked opponent

The BG women’s basketball team will take on its third Big Ten opponent this season on Sunday, Dec. 22. The Falcons will travel to Indiana to take on a nationally ranked Purdue team at 12 p.m.

The Boilermakers are 7-2 overall on the season and are ranked 18th in the nation. Purdue has picked up three home wins against Ball State, Belmont and IPFW. The Boilermakers added four road or neutral site victories as well. They defeated IUPUI, Toledo and Kansas on the road and beat TCU at the 2013 Hardwood Tournament of Hope in Mexico.

Purdue suffered their first loss in that same tournament, falling to Stanford 69-86. The Boilermakers’ most recent loss came to Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge by a score of 78-99 on Dec. 5. Purdue will face Green Bay in Wisconsin on Dec. 18 before its match with the Falcons.

BG took on the University of Michigan as part of the Iona Tipoff Tournament on Nov. 8. The Falcons defeated the Wolverines by a score of 63-52 in New York.

Just a few weeks later, the Falcons traveled to Columbus for the Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge, where they would go on to face Ohio State. Bowling Green defeated the Buckeyes on their home court 64-52.

Like the Boilermakers, the Falcons are undefeated at home. BG has only played two home games this season, but picked up wins for both.

The Falcons defeated Niagara on Nov. 15 and UW-Milwaukee on Dec. 8. BG is also undefeated in true road games, picking up wins at Butler, at Iona as part of the Iona Tipoff Tournament, and at Ohio State in the Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge.

The Falcons added three neutral site wins from early tournament play against Michigan, Old Dominion and Monmouth. BG’s only loss of the season came to Marist in the Hall of Fame Challenge on Nov. 22 by a score of 60-74.

Before heading to Purdue, the Falcons will welcome Massachusetts to the Stroh Center on Dec. 19 to make up a game postponed due to weather.

To conclude the month of December, the Falcons will return to the Stroh Center on Dec. 29 as they face Saint Francis University following the Purdue game. The SFU game will also be the Falcons’ last non-conference opponent before beginning Mid-American Conference play on Jan. 4 against Buffalo at the Stroh.
