WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Sometimes poor shooting can be overcome in basketball.
And despite leading host Purdue in a number of statistical categories Sunday, the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team did not make enough baskets, as Purdue held on for a 57-48 victory.
The Falcons were only 17-of-65 (26.2 percent) from the field, including a 2-of-19 effort on 3-pointers (10.5 percent).
Bowling Green held a 39-36 rebounding advantage, committed fewer fouls and forced the Boilermakers into nearly twice as many turnovers.
‘‘The bottom line is you have to make shots to win, and we did not make enough shots to win,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘I think we are a good 3-point shooting team, and we go 2-of-19.
‘‘We got a lot of good looks. We had a couple of breakaway layups we missed. We had a couple of follow-ups we missed,’’ Roos added.

There is some competitive spirit and toughness being displayed by Bowling Green’s men’s basketball team in the last few weeks.
The grit and determination surfaced again Sunday afternoon as the Falcons held on for a 64-62 win over Detroit at the Stroh Center.
Bowling Green is now 6-5 overall, having won three straight and four of its last five games.
‘‘We’re doing it together. We have a good group of guys. They are maturing as a group and individually,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
‘‘We’ve been playing real good basketball. Even the games that we lost were real close games,’’ said BG’s Anthony Henderson, a redshirt junior. ‘‘We have a lot of confidence right now.’’
In a game that saw five lead changes and four ties, Henderson’s basket off an offensive rebound gave the Falcons a 63-60 lead over the Titans with 1:36 left to play.

It’s been a while since the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team has played a game.
In fact, Bowling Green had the head football coach leave to take a similar job at Wake Forest, and hired a new coach in fewer days than the time between games for the Falcon women.  PHOTO GALLERY
However, the layoff didn’t hurt the Falcons who rolled past UMass, 86-46, Thursday afternoon in the Stroh Center. The game was postponed from Sunday because of inclement weather.
‘‘We haven’t played in 11 days ... There were a lot of moving pieces going on,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘They had to get permission from the president’s office to play during exams. We had to get permission from professors to get four exams moved for our kids.
‘‘I was really pleased with our effort,’’ she added. ‘‘I was concerned about the rust. I was concerned with us being in the middle of exams, and how we would be focused.’’

When Anthon Samuel decided not to return to Bowling Green after the Military Bowl last December, the Falcons’ coaching staff was in an quandary about the running back position.
The 2013 recruiting class was filled with potential replacements for Samuel, who rushed for 1,842 yards and 16 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Falcons.
However, Bowling Green needed a running back to get through spring drills.
Enter Travis Greene, a high school teammate of Samuel’s, who was a wide receiver with the Falcons.
Greene proved to be much more than spring drills fodder.
The 5-foot-10, 181 pound, redshirt sophomore, exploded for the Falcons this season, rushing for a school-record 1,555 yards with 11 touchdowns. He rushed for 100 or yards more in nine games, also a school record.

Called the "total package," Dino Babers was introduced this morning as the 18th head football coach at Bowling Green State University. WATCH VIDEO
‘’He has the skills and values required to sustain a solid program, and insure that we make a great team even better,’’ said Chris Kingston, BG’s athletics director, who added that Babers was his first choice for the job.
Babers, who was the head coach at Eastern Illinois for the last two years, replaces Dave Clawson. Clawson coached the Falcons for five years, before being named head coach at Wake Forest earlier this month.
The history and tradition of Bowling Green football, and the rich recruiting area in Ohio, were positives for Babers.
“The opportunity to recruit high school athletes from this state is unmatched,’’ Babers said. “You can name four or five states with just home-grown football players, and this is one of those states.
“To have that rich area so close to the university, and to be able to interact with those high school coaches …. gives you a great opportunity to be successful,” Babers added.
