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.

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.

Bowling Green’s women’s basketball team has had its share of troubles in recent games against Western Michigan.
The Falcons split decisions in the teams’ two meetings last season, largely in part to BG’s inability to shoot consistently inside.
Those inconsistencies continued in a Mid-American Conference matchup Wednesday night.  PHOTO GALLERY
But the Falcons put together an impressive second-half stretch resulting in a 72-50 win over the Broncos in the Stroh Center.
BG is 19-3 overall and 9-1 in the MAC, while WMU is 9-12, 5-5.
After leading 32-30 at the break, BG used a 25-4 run over first 12:03 of the second half to extend its lead to 57-34.
“We made it a point of emphasis to come out and play that first four minutes strong,” BG coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Today they came out with some extra in that first four minutes.
“We were able to hold them defensively, which we weren’t able to do in the first half.”

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.

TOLEDO — Toledo had the answer every time the Bowling Green men’s basketball team got close in the second half Wednesday night at Savage Arena.
The Rockets, helped by a 29-of-35 effort from the free-throw line, led from start to finish to down the Falcons, 83-76.  PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘It just came down to a rebound or a stop that we needed, but somehow we didn’t get it; that was a big factor,’’ BG’s Jehvon Clarke said. ‘‘Toledo is a good team, and every opportunity you have, you have to capitalize, whether it’s getting a rebound or making a free throw, or whatever.
‘‘Somehow we didn’t get big plays down the stretch.’’
Toledo started the game with an 11-0 run, and led by as many as 16 in the first half. The Falcons closed the half on an 8-2 run to trail 41-32 at the break.
‘‘Anytime you start off sluggish in the first few minutes of the game, and you are playing catchup, you exert a lot of energy,’’ Clarke said. ‘‘It’s just the effort and who wants to win more.
‘‘You have got to have that self-will to fight and preserve, and things like that to get a win. Unfortunately we didn’t get it.’’
