  • Poetry for Fall

  • 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.

BG honors Bill Frack with game

The University Athletics Department, in collaboration with the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation, has announced that the men’s basketball game against Cleveland State Saturday will be the inaugural Bill Frack Challenge.

Each year, one men’s basketball game will be named after the Falcon donor William D. Frack, who passed away May 28, 2014.

Frack was a lifetime fan of the men’s basketball program, his commitment to the program was shown in his donations of approximately $20 million.

The athletic department has named the court that the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs play on the Bill Frack Court.

“It is truly an honor to have Bill’s name on an annual event designed to realize his vision for the Falcon Men’s Basketball program,” said University Director of Athletics, Chris Kingston said. “There is no better way to honor Bill’s legacy than by combining his passion for high-level basketball competition and his philanthropic efforts within his

local community.”

In March, Frack made a contribution of around $700,000 to the University that allowed the University to offer a more competitive compensation package to attract new men’s head basketball coach, Chris Jans.

“For someone like Mr. Frack to give back to a program he loves and cares about and to give back to a community he cares about shows you a lot about the person he is,” Jans said in April. “It should be inspiring to all of us.”

Along with an in-game video tribute and on-court halftime recognition, the University Athletic Department will give away Bill Frack Challenge t-shirts to the first 500 fans.

When it comes to the game, the Falcons will be trying to put their close loss to Dayton on Tuesday behind them.

The Falcons are coming off the 66-62 loss, but played well for 30 minutes until Dayton took control in the second half.

When talking about the feeling after the game, guard Zack Denny said the glass was half full not

half empty.

“I think we are going to go on a good run now,” he said.

To start that run the Falcons will have to go through a 4-4 Vikings team that is 1-3 on the road this season and has a home loss to Toledo earlier

this season.

The Falcons are currently undefeated at home, currently 3-0 and will try to learn from the things that went wrong in

Tuesday’s game.

The Bill Frack Challenge will begin at 4 p.m. in the Stroh Center.
