CLEVELAND — Ball State is on a free roll and that quickly showed Friday afternoon in Quicken Loans Arena.
Playing their fifth game in the last seven days, and the third straight game in the Mid-American Conference tournament, the No. 5 seeded Cardinals had their way with the top-seeded Bowling Green Falcons.
Ball State let it fly from the 3-point arc, took away BG’s inside game, and played better than the Falcons on the way to a 73-55 victory. Bowling Green came into Friday’s semifinal on a bye after winning the regular season title.  PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘We normally go with stops and scores. We couldn’t get stops. We struggled a little bit to get scores,’’ BG senior Jillian Halfhill said. ‘‘So it was hard for us to cope with them making their shots, and us trying to score on the offensive end.’’
‘‘This was not a game about what if’s,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Ball State shot the ball better. We could not put the ball in the basket.

Kevin Dufour's had a smooth transition to college hockey.
The freshman left wing has been a regular in Bowling Green's lineup this season.
Dufour has nine goals and seven assists entering this weekend's Western Collegiate Hockey Association quarterfinal series with Michigan Tech.
The best-of-3 series is tonight, Saturday and, if necessary, and Sunday.
The 6-foot, 190-pounder has parlayed excellent skating and offensive skills into a spot on one of BG's top three forward lines.
Dufour is playing left wing on a line with center Dan DeSalvo and right wing Adam Berkle, who are two of BG's best offensive players. He's also skating on the power play.
Dufour started the season on the fourth line and quickly worked his way up the depth chart.
"From the day he got here until now, he's been open to the coaching. He's been willing to listen and work," BG coach Chris Bergeron said.

It all started to germinate and grow three decades ago when a very successful high school coach was picked to take over the Bowling Green State University women's basketball program.
Now, the Falcons are the elite program in the Mid-American Conference.
This is the 30th season since Fran Voll started his Bowling Green coaching career for the 1984-85 season.
Voll helped nurture the culture and set a standard of excellence that is now expected for the Falcon women.
''It's a level of tradition that has been carried on from one coaching staff to another coaching staff and so forth,'' current BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ''There is a lot of high expectations involved in this program, and we talk about that in the recruiting process for players and coaches.''
There have only eight losing seasons for the Falcons in the past 30 years.

With a bye into the semifinals of the Mid-American Conference tournament, the Bowling Green Falcon women's basketball team won't know their opponent until the day before the game.

Second- and third-round games today and Thursday, will determine BG's opposition Friday at noon in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena.
Bowling Green will face either Ball State, Northern Illinois or No. 4 seed Buffalo. The Falcons enter the MAC tournament on a 13-game winning streak.
''It is a challenge, indeed,'' BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ''We'll watch film on each opponent and try to do packages in practice that prepare us for each one.''
She said Tuesday's practice would be a conditioning session, and a shooting practice while going over both zone and man offenses and defenses.
''As players, we have to go back to being students of the game and recalling,'' said BG senior Alexis Rogers. ''I tell my second-graders all the time, recalling the information we have already gone through.
''It's reviewing what we have already studied, and been tested on when we played that team,'' Rogers continued. ''We are going to have to remember player tendencies, what they do, and plays ... We're just going to have to refresh, and take it in quickly, remember and  recall things.''
Roos is glad for the additional day off as the team is battling some bumps and bruises, and illnesses.
''Everybody will be back at practice (Tuesday) healthy, which is a good sign,'' Roos said.
