  • 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 […]

Seniors dominate Ohio in final game at Stroh Center

Three BG seniors led the Falcons to a successful afternoon on Senior Day at the Stroh Center.

The BG women’s basketball team defeated Ohio University on Sunday by a score of 63-39, earning an undefeated record at home for the season.

With the win, the Falcons advanced to 25-3 overall and 15-1 in the Mid-American Conference.

BG head coach Jennifer Roos said she wanted Sunday’s emphasis to be placed strictly on the seniors and the contributions and commitments they made to the program.

“Today is about the seniors and I was really happy with their contributions today,” Roos said. “It’s fitting today that … we were able to earn a victory today, on senior day and also it gave us an undefeated record at home.”

Jill Stein, one of the three seniors honored Sunday, said it is strange to think her time of playing competitive, organized basketball is coming to an end. To avoid being sad, she looks ahead to the upcoming milestones that her team still wants to achieve this season.

“There’s so much more to think about than just my own personal basketball career,” Stein said. “We still have a ton of stuff to accomplish this season and hopefully it won’t end anytime soon.”

Unlike Stein, Roos said Senior Day is an emotional day that cannot be overlooked with games down the road. She said the emotions of Senior Day hit seniors Stein, Jillian Halfhill and Alexis Rogers at different points throughout the week, and said when it hit them, it really hit them hard.

“Actually, Senior Day’s hard,” Roos said. “It’s a lot of emotion. Even though you have additional games, you still have the MAC tournament, you have the post-season tournament whatever that may be, Senior Day hits you. It hits you right in your gut, it hits you in your heart, it hits you in the head and it’s a tough combination and for those three to play so well today, I’m really proud of them. “

Going along with the theme of the day, the three seniors led the way for the Falcons. Halfhill finished with 12 points, while Rogers added 11 points for BG. Stein finished her last game at the Stroh Center recording a double-double of 11 points and 13 rebounds.

The rematch with Central Michigan at the Stroh was one of Stein’s best memories of the season at home, but she said overall, all of their home games this season were memorable.

“That’s a pretty big accomplishment to go undefeated at home,” Stein said. “I think that just proves what kind of an atmosphere this is and kind of what the fans bring for us and then how we can build off of that and just kind of reciprocate that back to them.”

The Falcons will be back in action on Wednesday, March 5, as they travel to Oxford to take on Miami University with tipoff scheduled for 12 p.m.
