  • 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, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

BGSU women’s basketball picks up 40 point win

The BG women’s basketball team defeated Massachusetts Dec., 19 by 40 points in a makeup game that was postponed Sunday (Dec. 15) due to weather.

The Falcons defeated UMass by a score of 86-46 and advanced to an overall record of 9-1.

BG came out in the first half and made seven three-pointers in just the half. Just under midway through the half, the Falcons scored triples on three consecutive plays from three different players to boost BG to a 30-13 lead. BG continued to build their lead throughout the game thanks to four Falcons landing themselves into double-digits. The balanced scoring of the Falcons proved to be too much for the Minutewomen of UMass to handle.

Junior Deborah Hoekstra led the way for the Falcons with 19 points, along with three steals. Redshirt sophomore Erica Donovan was not far behind with 18 points and six rebounds, while redshirt senior Alexis Rogers added on 16 points and eight rebounds. Junior Jasmine Matthews rounded out the double-digit scoring for BG with 10 points and five rebounds.

Rogers said that the delayed game, although hectic, did benefit her team in terms of preparation for the game.

“I think [the delay] kind of benefitted us just because we got to prep for literally a week,” Rogers said. “They didn’t have too many sets for us to go through, but the sets that we did go through, they ran tonight. I think we knew them by heart, almost as well as the other team did.”

Head coach Jennifer Roos said that she had concerns going into Sunday’s game. She feared that her players would need to shake off some rust after not playing for 11 days. However she said that she is proud of her team’s effort against UMass, a team that she said is better than their record suggests.

“[UMass] has turned into a rivalry game for us in our short-lived two game series,” Roos said. “Even though they finished 3-and-26 last year, [last year’s game] was a game where they had a chance to win. Even though this UMass team is 3-and-8, I don’t want people to be fooled.”

The Falcons will be back in action on Sunday, Dec. 22 as they travel to Purdue to take on a nationally-ranked Boilermaker team at 12 pm.
