  • 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 […]

Rogers Leads Falcons Past Buffalo

The BGSU women’s basketball opened up their Mid-American Conference play with a win over Buffalo by a score of 62-50.

The Falcons found themselves down early as Buffalo opened the game with seven straight points before Alexis Rogers made two free throws to get the falcons on the board. Buffalo would score four quick points before heading into a media timeout.

After the timeout Miriam Justinger drained two three pointers to bring the Falcons within two. Rogers would then make a layup to tie the game at 12.

Buffalo would hit another shot to take the lead 14-12 until Justinger hit another shot from behind the arch to give the falcons the lead 15-14 with 12:40 remaining in the first half.

The three point field goals made by Justinger lifted the Falcons; they would take the lead and stay there for the remainder of the half.

At the half Rogers lead all scorers with twelve points and she also collected nine rebounds. Justinger was right behind her with eleven points.

The Falcons started the second half like they ended the first by continuing to out rebound and out score Buffalo with Rogers leading the way along with Justinger.

“I was really pleased with our rebounding,” head coach Roos said “Rogers cleaned up the glass; it was a key in winning the game.”

The Falcons found themselves leading 57-47 until Deborah Hoekstra hit a big three with 1:13 left in the game to essentially seal the deal for the Falcons.

Alexis Rogers scored a season high 22 points and collected a career high 17 rebounds. Jill Stein stood out as she grabbed 13 rebounds and scored 9 points. Justinger had 11 points and was 3 for 5 from behind the arch.

“MAC games feel different, everyone comes to play because it’s a clean slate” Rogers said. “No one wants to start conference 0-1.”

With the win the Falcons improve to 11-2 and 1-0 in the conference.

The Falcons will travel to Kent State Jan. 9 as they continue to MAC play.
