Bowling Green's baseball team is striving to build on last season.
The Falcons won the Mid-American Conference tournament to advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1999.
They return their entire lineup with one exception - pitcher Nick Bruns, who was 6-2 with six saves and a 2.53 earned-run average in 29 games.
"Last season gave us a lot of confidence and we're doing everything we can to get ready and be even better this season," said BG senior first baseman Jeremy Shay, a second-team All-MAC choice.
But BG is hoping to play well from start to finish after finishing 24-31 overall and 13-13 in the MAC for fourth place in the East Division.
The Falcons, though, went 4-1 in the MAC tournament to earn the championship.
BG beat Buffalo in its final regular-season game just to qualify for the MAC tourney.
"The expectations are even higher," said Shay, who led BG with a .330 average last season. He tied for the team lead in home runs with six and was second in runs batted in with 38.
BG is dominated by seniors and juniors, and only one sophomore starts.
"We know every team is going to be coming after us because we have a target on our back after last year," Shay said. "We have to go out and play our best every day and raise the level of our play."

There are many ways to motivate young athletes, and some work better than others.
Jennifer Roos, in her second season as Bowling Green's head women's basketball coach, may have found the perfect motivational tool.
Roos said she would give the Falcons an extra day off if they played well in winning against Miami Sunday in the the Stroh Center. PHOTO GALLERY
The tactic worked as Bowling Green went on a 15-0 run after Miami made the first basket of the game.
The Falcons then never looked back, posting a 91-45 victory. It was the 20th win of the season for the Falcons, 20-3 overall and 10-1 in the Mid-American Conference.
"We challenged them the past couple of days in some unique ways,'' Roos said. "I drew up the last straw, and gave them an extra day off if they played well.
"This team has earned a well-deserved break … There was pure enthusiasm in the locker room when I told them if we achieved some goals, what they would earn as a result," Roos added.

Flashes from Gordon: Next step proves difficult for BG hockey (02-07-14) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while shaking my head at college football's national signing day, a day when grown men drool over 17- and 18-year-olds who haven't played a down of football past high school:

DIFFICULT STEP: Bowling Green's hockey team is no longer one of college hockey's bottom-feeders.
The Falcons have become an average to an above average team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, but they're finding the next step is a difficult one.
Becoming a championship team isn't easy. And the Falcons have struggled with that.
Just three weeks ago, the Falcons were in position to perhaps finish as high as second in the WCHA with an outside opportunity to win the league had Ferris State collapsed.
Instead, BG is going to have to play consistently and win in its final six games just to have to chance to earn home ice for the WCHA quarterfinals.

In less than 10 seconds, the Bowling Green Falcon men’s basketball team felt both jubilation and frustration Sunday evening at the Stroh Center.
With 9.9 seconds left in the game against Akron, BG’s Jehvon Clarke banked in a straight-on 22-foot 3-pointer to tie the game at 63. PHOTO GALLERY
Then with 2.3 seconds left, Akron’s Quincy Diggs knocked down an 18-footer from the left wing, under pressure, to put the Zips ahead by two.
When Clarke’s desperation 3-pointer did not fall, the Zips had held on for a 65-63 win.

BGSU recruitng class features 13 Ohio players (2-5-14) PDF Print E-mail

Dino Babers’ first football recruiting class at Bowling Green State University is highly invested in players from Ohio.
Babers was hired to replace Dave Clawson in December. Clawson, BG’s head coach for five years, resigned after the Falcons beat Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game, to become the head coach at Wake Forest.
‘‘We need to make sure to give credit, where credit is due,’’ Babers said about the recruiting class announced Wednesday. ‘‘A majority of this class was recruited by coach Clawson, and his former staff ... In the interview process Chris Kingston (BG’s athletics director) made sure that we wanted to honor every commit of everybody coach Clawson handed to him and said they were committed to Bowling Green State University.
‘‘We did that to 100 percent of everybody that was on the list,’’ Babers added.
