Bowling Green State University has confirmed that Curt Miller has resigned as women's basketball coach to take a similar position at Indiana University.

A press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m. today at IU, according to the Bloomington Herald-Times.

“This is a bittersweet moment that we knew would come eventually,” said BGSU Director of Athletics Greg Christopher.  “Curt transformed women’s basketball here at Bowling Green. As much as our department and the community will miss him, we are also thrilled for Curt as he takes this new challenge.

“Bowling Green women’s basketball is now recognizable nationwide and our goal is to build on the tradition of excellence,” said Christopher.  “Finding a new leader for our student-athletes is our top priority. We will begin a national search for our new head coach immediately.”

DETROIT — Bowling Green’s amazing run in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs came to a heart-breaking end Friday night.
But it took almost 82 minutes to beat the Falcons.
Luke Moffatt scored 64 seconds into the second 20-minute overtime to give third-ranked Michigan a 3-2 victory in the CCHA semifinals at Joe Louis Arena.

Luke Glendening, whose dad, Tom, played college football at BG, centered the puck into the crease from deep on the right side. The puck stayed in the crease and Moffatt, a sophomore left wing and Columbus Blue Jackets’ draft pick, came in to score.
BG goalie Andrew Hammond had no chance to make the save as the play came during a wild goalmouth scramble.
Michigan, 24-11-4 overall, will play No. 14 Western Michigan (20-13-6) for the CCHA playoff title tonight at 7:35.

LARAMIE, Wyo. — Bowling Green’s women held off Wyoming to post a 60-53 road win over the Cowgirls Thursday night at Arena Auditorium.
With the win the Falcons improved 9-3 overall. BG has won nine of its last 10 games after an 0-2 start to the season.
Jessica Slagle led BG with 16 points and four assists and Chrissy Steffen added 15 points for the Falcons, who overcame an early eight-point deficit in the fist half. 
Alexis Rogers added six points and 12 rebounds, and Danielle Havel pulled down eight boards for BG, which finished with a 42-37 edge on the glass.
Ashely Sickles led Wyoming (4-8) with 16 points, while Chaundra Sewell finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds and Kaitlyn Mileto added 10 points.
Wyoming took a 16-8 lead with 13:16 left in the first half before BG went on a 20-8 run to finish the half and take a 28-24 lead into the break.
The Falcons would push their lead to as large as 13 points in the second half and never trailed after halftime,  as Wyoming never got closer than six points in the final minutes of the game.
Slagle made 12-of-16 free throws in the game and the Falcons finished 14-of-19 (737 percent) for the game.

Brown's presence 'means a lot' to BG men's basketball team (03-02-12) PDF Print E-mail

Even though he turned 22-years-old less than two months ago, Dee Brown is considered an 'old' basketball player.
The term 'old' is used as a positive for the Bowling Green senior, who recently became the 39th player to school history to score 1,000 points in his career.
Brown is wise in basketball years and plays an old-school game.
He's not flashy looking for high-flying dunks when a simple layup is worth the same amount of points.
He's not looking to make the highlight film pass when a bounce pass produces the same result.
You may not even notice him on the court because Brown doesn't dazzle you with his athleticism. But after the game, the stat sheet shows a double-figure scoring game with a couple of rebounds and assists thrown in as well.
"He's just a top-flight kid," Miami coach Charlie Coles said. "I call (him) 'tough' because I have coached against him for four years. When you coach those kids, you are in heaven. Give me those kids.

BG's Morgan adapts to new role (9-23-11) PDF Print E-mail
Written by By JACK CARLE Sentinel Sports Editor

So far this season, less means more for Bowling Green’s Keith Morgan.
A senior, Morgan has played safety since getting playing time as a true freshman in 2008. In the last two years he has been in 24 games, with 10 starts, while making 135 tackles. He came to Bowling Green after earning first-team Division III All-Ohio honors as a defensive back his senior year at Bellefontaine High School
The fall, Morgan is the backup rover and the sixth defensive back when needed. He’s also a special teams stalwart. He’ll be on the field Saturday when the Falcons open their Mid-American Conference schedule at Miami. Kickoff is 1 p.m.
The cutback in Morgan’s playing time this fall hasn’t limited his production.
“Keith Morgan, so far through three games, has been more productive as our rover and as our nickel (defensive back), playing less snaps than he was last year as a starter. He has really played well,” BG head coach Dave Clawson said. “He’s made plays. He’s made tackles. He’s defended well in the pass game.”
Morgan has been in on 11 tackles this fall, including eight solos, and he has two tackles for loss.
