  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

Head Coach Louis Orr is one game away from 200 career wins

Anthony Henderson goes up for a layup in their recent loss to The University of Akron.

A win for the Falcons Wednesday night at Kent State would give head coach Louis Orr win number 100 at BG and number 200 of his career.

Coach Orr accumulated his first 100 wins at Siena and Seton Hall before he got the BG job and earned another 99 wins.

“I thank God for the opportunity to coach,” Orr said. “I thank him for the opportunity to influence and mentor young men, also.”

He has accumulated many awards over the course of his coaching career, the two most notable being Mid-American Coach of the Year in the 2009 season, as well as earning the title of Big East Coach of the Year at Seton Hall in 2003.

Orr’s Falcons are coming off a tough loss by the hands of Akron guard Quincy Diggs’ game-winner over guard Jehvon Clarke.

That makes two games in a row where the team made a second half comeback only to come up short in the last quarter. This past Wednesday, the Falcons were down 26-10 to Toledo and came back, but could not get the win. They were down 14 to the Zips at one point and, yet again, they came back but could not finish it.

“We need to improve our start to our games,” Orr said.

Senior Craig Sealey dressed against Akron for the first time since Dec. 7 against Xavier University. Sealey did not finish the game, as he said, they are monitoring his minutes.

“With Craig, it is usually how it feels the day after and he is feeling good,” Orr said.

Freshman Zack Denny has also not played since Jan. 19 against Western Michigan when he only played six minutes. He has been out with a knee problem and is currently going through a strengthening program, Orr said.

The Golden Flashes have three players on the team who all average above double digits. Guard Kris Brewer leads the Flashes averaging 11.7 a game, while Derek Jackson and Darren Goodson are both averaging around 10 points a game.

The Flashes have lost their last two games on the road, but won their latest home game against Akron 60-57 on a game winning three from Darren Goodson.

Coach Orr has a chance to earn career number 200 this Wednesday, but he is more focused on what they need to do to win the game and not about his winning number.
