  • 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 […]

Women’s basketball looks to add to their MAC record

The BG women’s basketball team will return to the Stroh Center on Wednesday as it welcomes Western Michigan University. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Falcons enter Wednesday’s matchup at 18-3 overall and 8-1 in Mid-American Conference play. This past week, BG claimed two wins in battles against MAC foes Ohio University and the University of Toledo.

Western Michigan currently has an overall record of 9-11 and a MAC record of 5-4. Prior to conference play, the Broncos claimed wins over UMass, Detroit, Chicago State and Valparaiso. The Broncos lost to Albany, Michigan, Tulsa, Arkansas, IUPUI, UIC and Oakland before heading to MAC play.

Once into the conference slate, Western Michigan defeated Miami twice, Buffalo, Toledo and Northern Illinois. The Broncos have lost matchups to Ohio, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Ball State.

This past year, the Falcons split their series between the two teams. On the team’s road trip to Western Michigan, the Falcons lost 54-55 on Feb. 10. The teams faced off again in the second round of the MAC championship in Cleveland. BG came out victorious by a score of 55-53.

Redshirt sophomore Erica Donovan said Wednesday’s matchup is just another game for her team to learn from and move forward.

“For myself individually, [I am focusing on] just doing what I know I can do, you know, don’t try to do too much, and then as a team, play together, win together and move forward from there,” Donovan said.

Head coach Jennifer Roos said Western has two “tremendous” post players who are both under six feet, but are two of the best post players they’ve seen based on their field goal percentage.

“We [had] our hands full last year, and we’ll have our hands full again on Wednesday,” Roos said.

Following the Western Michigan matchup, the Falcons will return to the Stroh Center to face Miami on Feb. 9. Sunday’s game is set to tipoff at 2 p.m.
