  • 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 […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Falcons clinch a seed no worse than fourth and a bye into the third round for the MAC Tournament

In a game with 18 lead changes, the Falcons rallied late to capture a win in Buffalo Saturday.

BG defeated the Bulls by a score of 73-63.

With the win, the Falcons advanced to 23-3 overall and 13-1 in the Mid-American Conference. BG also secured no worse than a fourth seed in the MAC tournament with the win, and will earn a double-bye straight into the third round of the tournament.

Rogers finished with a game-high 25 points and redshirt sophomore Erica Donovan added 24. Senior Jillian Halfhill rounded out BG’s double-digit scorers with 13 points.

The Falcons claimed the final lead change of the game with a Rogers jumper, giving BG a 58-57 lead in the final four minutes. The bucket sparked an 11-0 run for the Falcons.

BG head coach Jennifer Roos said Buffalo had the lead as late as four minutes to go, but the Falcons retaliated by making 12 free throws from the 1:45 mark on. As a whole, the Falcons finished 70.8 percent on 17-of-24 from the charity stripe.

The Falcons went 23-of-48 from the field for 47.9 percent and made 10 of 25 attempts from three-point range for 40 percent. The Bulls finished 41.7 percent on 25-of-60 from the field and made just 4-of-21 for 19 percent from behind the arc.

Buffalo out-rebounded the Falcons 34-32, just the third time all year that BG had pulled down fewer boards against an opponent.

Roos said that Buffalo has always proven to be a difficult environment for the Falcons to play in, despite BG capturing the last 20 meetings with the Bulls.

“I’ve been involved with Bowling Green basketball since 2001, and I have never been to Buffalo and it’s been an easy win,” Roos said.

Throughout the season, the Falcons have had six different leading scorers and 5 different leading rebounders from only nine healthy bodies on the roster. As a whole, Roos said that her team has made “significant strides” since the last Buffalo game earlier this season.

“A lot of people have stepped up,” Roos said. “People are making contributions. If they’re not making contributions on the offensive end, they’re making contributions on the defensive end and they are really sticking together.”

The Falcons will return to action at the Stroh Center for two consecutive home games. First, BG will face Kent State on Feb. 27. Then, Ohio will come to Bowling Green on March 3 in the Falcons’ final home game of the season.
