  • Women in Horror for Halloween
    It’s that time of year again where the weather is starting to cool down and the Halloween decorations are being put out. For me once it hits end of September my TBR becomes nothing, but horror and thriller novels. As a big mood reader the seasons and holidays determine what I want to read next. […]
  • 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, […]

Falcons use late surge to overcome UW-Milwaukee

Bowling Green came back from a nine point deficit to win 60-50 against University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to get their second win of the season.

The game had a very different feel from the last time these teams matched up when Bowling Green won in the Stroh Center 87-64 last year.

Both teams struggled on the offensive end all through the first half. Only a combined 29 points were scored and the Panthers shot 23.1 percent from the floor while the Falcons shot 18.8 percent.

Ashley Green, who was averaging 33 points a game for the Panthers coming into the game, continued her high-scoring season to fluster Bowling Green on defense. Green was the only person on her team to score double digits with 23 points.

Green also led her team in percentages shooting 75 percent from the floor and 100 percent from the free throw line.

On the other end, Bowling Green had balanced scoring as their line up continues to fluctuate. Sophomore Rachel Konieczki, junior Miriam Justinger, and redshirt junior Erica Donovan each scored double digits to lead their team to the win.

Donovan neared a double-double with nine rebounds in the game to add to the team total 46. The Falcons were able to capitalize on a lot of those rebounds with 18 second-chance points, 14 of those points coming in the second half.

Turnovers also played a big part in the game as Milwaukee gave the ball up 24 times. Bowling Green was aggressive off the break, scoring 25 points from those turnovers.

The Falcons found themselves down by nine late in the second half before head coach Jennifer Roos called a timeout. Out of that break, Bowling Green rallied behind a pair of Konieczki three pointers. The sophomore was 3-for-6 on the night behind the arc.

Three of Donovan’s 14 points also came big late in the game after connecting on a contact lay-up and converting the and-one to put the Falcons up five. Bowling Green led for the rest of the game for a comfortable win.

The team will be back in action Nov.  28 when they go against UC Irvine in Los Angeles.
