The tradition and legacy of Bowling Green Falcon women's basketball has been passed on for years from the graduating seniors to the upcoming senior class.
Bowling Green has had numerous talented players come through the program, but it's learning how to win and how to be champions that make the difference.
This past season when the Falcons were 30-5, seniors Alexis Rogers, Jillian Halfhill and Jill Stein led the way.
''They understand what you need to do to be successful, on and off the court. They understand what you need to do to be successful in the locker room as well. That's a component that is sometimes lost in the shuffle of scoring, rebounding, assists,'' BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ''They know what it's like to be a champion on the court, in the classroom, and in the locker room. For us to be successful we needed all three of those pieces.''
The mantle of responsibility has now been passed to Jasmine Matthews and Deborah Hoekstra, BG's two 2014-15 seniors.

Home-and-home series against Miami and Ohio State, and an outdoor game against Robert Morris at Fifth Third Field in Toledo highlight Bowling Green's nonleague hockey schedule next season.
The Falcons open the season against Miami in a Friday-Sunday series that starts Oct. 10 in the Ice Arena and finishes Oct. 12 in Oxford.
BG plays OSU Nov. 14-15.
The Falcons, Miami and OSU all were members of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, which broke up after the 2012-13 season when college hockey's massive realignment took affect.
BG's outdoor game is Jan. 3 at noon and the home-and-home series concludes the next night at Robert Morris.
The Falcons' eight-game nonleague schedule also includes a two-game series at Clarkson Oct. 24-25.
The Falcons' 36-game regular-season schedule consists of 16 home games, 19 road games and the neutral-site game at Toledo, which is BG's home game.

It’s an understatement, but true — Chris Jans has hit the ground running as the new Bowling Green Falcon men’s basketball coach.
In just over a month, he’s hired three assistant coaches, put together a four-player recruiting class, run the NCAA allowed spring practices while starting to get to know the returning players, learn about BGSU and the Bowling Green community, and begin putting together a nonconference schedule for the 2014-15 season.
‘‘I tried to prioritize my energy and my time from the press conference until today,’’ Jans said on Wednesday. ‘‘The underlying current for me was always recruiting; I never slept on recruiting. That always was a priority, and it’s always in the back of my mind. If I had to make a decision between recruiting and one of those other areas, I chose recruiting. It’s certainly been a whirlwind.’’

Falcon football faces a lot of hard work (5-3-14) PDF Print E-mail

To meet the standards of Dino Babers and to become ‘‘Falcon Fast’’ it’s going to take a lot of hard work for the Bowling Green Falcon football team.
With less than four months before the season-opener at Western Kentucky on Aug. 29, Babers is looking for improvement in all areas.
Babers was hired in December to replace Dave Clawson, who took a similar position at Wake Forest. The Falcons were 10-4 last season, capturing the Mid-American Conference championship with a victory over previously undefeated Northern Illinois.
‘‘We need to stay healthy throughout the year ... Our starting 22 is really good, but there are only a couple of positions where we can go past that and survive,’’ Babers said. ‘‘If we get the wrong injuries in the wrong places, we’ll be like any other football team.’’

Rasheed Worrell and Jovan Austin have signed their national letter of intent to attend Bowling Green State University to continue their academic and basketball careers.
Worrell is a 6-8, 205 pound forward from Coker, Ala. He originally signed a national letter of intent with Appalachian State in November, but was released due to a coaching change.
“Rasheed Worrell is a special student-athlete.  Rasheed exemplifies the type of student-athlete we will covet at BGSU.  He is a wonderful young man that is very engaging and thoughtful,” BG head coach Chris Jans said. “‘Sheed’ oozes potential with his length, frame, skill, and athletic ability. Fortunately he possesses the drive and work ethic to turn that potential into productivity. In due time Rasheed will prove to be an exceptional addition to BGSU. “
