Defensively there were a lot of positives for the Bowling Green men’s basketball team Sunday against Northern Illinois.
That was not the case offensively as the Falcons struggled to score the entire game.
The end result was a 45-36 loss to NIU at the Stroh Center.
‘‘This was a game where offense was a struggle at both ends,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
‘‘Defensively we have been good,’’ he added. ‘‘We’ve just had trouble scoring, plain and simple.’’
Against NIU, the Falcons shot 29.3 percent from the field (12-of-41) and 23.1 percent on 3-pointers (3-of-13). BG also struggled tremendously from the free-throw line, going 9-of-21 for the game (42.9 percent), including a 1-of-11 effort (9.1 percent) in the second half.
‘‘The way they (NIU) played defense, they really tried to fill the gaps, the driving lanes, and make you have to move the ball and attack,’’ Orr said. ‘‘They did a pretty good job of making us work to get the ball inside, and when we did, we got the ball outside the lane.
‘‘We’ll make some adjustments. We’ll do what we can to try to generate offense without sacrificing defense, and things will get better,’’ Orr added.
NIU held a 28-16 lead at the half as the two teams combined for 19 turnovers, and only 14 made field goals in the first half.

In an early-season statement game, Bowling Green women’s basketball team showed its mettle Sunday afternoon.
Facing the preseason favorite to win the Mid-American East, the Falcons rolled past Akron, 81-65, at the Stroh Center.
‘‘The bull’s-eye is actually on their (Akron’s) back for once,’’ said BG senior Jillian Halfhill. ‘‘We took it that we were just going to go and play our heart’s out, and show everyone what we’ve got.’’
‘‘We had a lot to prove,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘We really emphasized protecting home court, and our kids really stepped up to the plate.’’

Ryan Carpenter only had to wait 52 seconds for his first shift of the regular season Friday night.
Once the Bowling Green junior started playing, it was business as usual for one of the best players in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
The forward scored a goal in helping the Falcons to a 3-0 victory over the University of Alaska in the Ice Arena.

Tommy Burke enabled Bowling Green to be rewarded on a night the Falcons were painfully average.
The sophomore stopped 31 shots Saturday to enable the Falcons to earn a 1-1 overtime tie against the University of Alaska in the Ice Arena.
Marcus Basara’s goal with 12:16 remaining tied the game for UA after BG took a 1-0 lead on Mark Cooper’s goal just 1:52 into the game. BOX SCORE
UA held a 32-27 edge in shots, but needed Burke’s pad save on Garrick Perry’s breakaway with just under a minute to play in the five-minute extra period to secure the tie.
BG had its four-game winning streak snapped, although it improved to 4-0-1 in its last five games.
The Falcons are 12-9-5 overall and 9-6-3 in the WCHA. John Keeney made 26 saves for  UA (8-10-4, 5-9-2).

Preventing goals was a major problem for Bowling Green during the first half of the season.
Hard work in practice following the team’s holiday’s break is enabling the Falcons to become a difficult team to score against.
BG played well again defensively Friday, allowing just 16 shots en route to a 3-0 win over the University of Alaska in the Ice Arena.  BOX SCORE
Tommy Burke was in goal for the shutout, and the defense corps of Mike Sullivan, Sean Walker, Marcus Perrier, Connor Kucera, Ralfs Freibergs and Rusty Hafner played well.
The Falcons received goals from Bryce Williamson in the second period, and Ryan Carpenter and Adam Berkle in the third period to record their fourth straight win.
Carpenter, one of the best players in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, played in a game for the first time this season after missing the first 24 games with a broken finger and a broken foot.
“I’m really happy with the way we defended,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
