Sparked by a strong second half from Richaun Holmes, the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team beat North Dakota, 79-69, in the Stroh Center Wednesday.
Bowling Green held a 30-27 lead at the half with Holmes contributing two points, two rebounds, and one block while playing 16 of the first 20 minutes.  PHOTO GALLERY
The second half was a different story as Holmes scored 19 points, pulled down 14 rebounds, and blocked six shots as the Falcons won for the second time in the last three games.
‘‘I just wanted to be more aggressive in the second half; my teammates needed me,’’ Holmes said. ‘‘I’m just trying to do what I can for my teammates, and in response they are doing the same for me.

Berkle, Carpenter remain sidelined (12-11-13) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green's hockey team remains short-handed.
Adam Berkle and Ryan Carpenter won't play this weekend at Michigan Tech, Falcon coach Chris Bergeron said Tuesday.
Berkle has missed the last three games with a hip pointer. Carpenter hasn't played this season because of a broken finger and a broken foot.
They're two of BG's best forwards.
Berkle is skating in practice, but is "not showing signs of improvement to where he's an option for the weekend," Bergeron said, adding Berkle is "not even north of 80 percent" healthy.
After facing Tech, BG is idle until Dec. 27-28 until it plays in the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh.
Bergeron is optimistic Berkle will be ready for those games.
No timetable has been set for Carpenter's return. The Pittsburgh games haven't been ruled out, but it might be BG's Jan. 3-4 series at Alabama-Huntsville for his return.
LINEUP: Dajon Mingo will remain on defense until BG is healthy, Bergeron said.

Wake Forest likes Clawson's 'reputation as a builder of programs' (12-10-13) PDF Print E-mail

Wake Forest has hired Bowling Green’s Dave Clawson to become the Demon Deacon’s next football coach.
In formally announcing the move, athletics director Ron Wellman on Tuesday said in a release that Clawson is “a proven winner” who “has developed a national reputation as a builder of programs.”
Clawson will be introduced during a news conference Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in Winston-Salem, N.C.
He led Bowling Green (10-3) to an upset of previously unbeaten and then-No. 16 Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game last week.
He will not coach the Falcons against Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Bowling Green elevated special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Adam Scheier to interim head coach.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C — Dave Clawson seems like a natural fit for Wake Forest.
Clawson is known as a program-builder — and after five straight losing seasons, the Demon Deacons sure could use a few tweaks.
Clawson on Tuesday called it “truly a dream come true” to be introduced as Wake Forest’s coach.
“We have a winner,” Wake Forest athletics director and BGSU graduate Ron Wellman said of the 46-year-old Clawson, who led turnarounds at Fordham, Richmond and, most recently, Bowling Green.
Now Clawson faces another one at Wake Forest.
“It all begins with getting the right people on board,” Clawson said. “It’s having a shared vision of what you want the program to look like. It’s getting players to buy into the commitment level it takes to become a good football team.
“It’s not, ‘snap the fingers’ and it happens,” he added. “You have to have players that buy into every aspect of the program.”

Despite a change in coaches, the Bowling Green football Falcons are moving forward to get ready for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Dec. 26.
Dave Clawson, BG’s head coach for the last five years, has been named the head coach at Wake Forest.
Adam Scheier, the Falcons’ special teams coordinator and tight ends coach, will coach the team on an interim basis.
Getting ready for Pittsburgh will be business as usual for the Falcons.
‘‘This doesn’t change a thing; the program has been built,’’ BG fifth-year senior Ronnie Goble said. ‘‘Our AD (Chris Kingston) was great, saying no man is indispensable. This is about Bowling Green football, not just coach Clawson. He was the leader, but the culture is here and the leaders are still here.’’
Scheier said a plan for practices for the bowl game has already been laid out, and he doesn’t expect any changes.
