  • 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 […]

Shooting struggles drop Falcons under .500

The BG Men’s basketball team dropped their second straight contest, losing 65-60 against IPFW Thursday night.

After starting slowly in the previous game against Wright State, the Falcons continued that trend by shooting just six for 27 the floor and 1-9 on 3-point shots in the first half. That bad shooting start resulted in a 34-21 deficit.

While the Falcons were struggling shooting the basketball, both teams were carless with the ball turning it over 10 times each in the first half.

The Falcons found themselves down 41-25 early in the second half. The Falcons were forced to pick up the defensive pressure and where able to hold IPFW without a field goal for just under six minutes, as they went on a 13-1 run.

The scoring drought was fueled by a full court trap, which caused turnovers and fast break opportunities to help trim the IPFW lead to 42-38 at the 12-minute mark.

Although the Falcons cut the IPFW lead to within one point, they would never gain the lead in the second half.

While the Falcons made a defensive adjustment in the second half, so did the Mastodons. They fell back into a 2-3 zone that forced the Falcons to settle for difficult field goal attempts outside the key.

Each team had three players in double-digit scoring. The Falcons Richaun Holmes and Jehvon Clarke both had 16 points, while Spencer Parker had 15 points of his own.

The Mastodons Steve Forbes had a team high 15 points, followed by Luis Jacobo 13, and Mo Evans who had 11.

Rebounding leaders were Falcons Cameron Black with 11 and Mastodons Joe Reed with eight.

Holmes led for the Falcons going 5-7 from the floor, 4-4 from the line, 2-2 on 3-point field goals, nine rebounds, two assists, and two blocks to go with his 16 points.

The Falcons committed 19 turnovers, and shot just 2-15 on 3-point shots for the game.

The loss drops the Falcons just under .500 at 6-7 for the season. The Falcons will start conference play on Jan. 8 when they host Eastern Michigan University.
