There’s no question that the Falcon men’s basketball team has had problems closing out games lately.
Going into Wednesday’s home game against Kent State, the Falcons have lost four of their last five games by a combined eight points, and the win was a two-point victory.
After BG opened up a 12-point lead over the Golden Flashes, Kent State rallied back to make it a three-point game, 53-50, with 5:33 left in the game. PHOTO GALLERY
However, the Falcons did not fold, and were able to close things out at the free-throw line to record a 73-66 victory.
‘‘You have to be able to persevere and be mentally tough,’’ BG’s Jehvon Clarke said. ‘‘We know we’re going to have to handle adversity some way, some how, even if we’re up or we’re down.
‘‘It gives you a certain motivational level, a positive vibe as well,’’ Clarke added about the win. ‘‘Every opportunity we have, we have to take advantage of it.’’

Bowling Green's running out of time.
The Falcons have just four regular-season games remaining to solidify a spot in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs.
They're also in contention to host a first-round playoff series.
BG is in a three-way tie for fifth in the league with 24 points. It's only four points out of third place, but just three points ahead of ninth.
The Falcons visit Northern Michigan, the ninth-place team, Friday and Saturday and then host eighth-place Bemidji State March 7-8.
The top eight teams in the 10-team league make the playoffs with the top four hosting quarterfinal series.
"We need to play better," BG coach Chris Bergeron said of the standings. "None of that stuff matters until we start playing better or unless we start playing better."
The Falcons are 1-4-2 in their last seven games and didn't play well in a 6-1 exhibition loss Friday to the United States U-18 Team.
"We've spent most of our time focusing on why we're not playing well and that we need to play better. The last couple days, the preparation has been good, it's been focused. The execution has been good.

OXFORD — Different day and opponent, but the same familiar scenario for the Bowling Green men’s basketball team Sunday.
Miami made a 15-0 run early in the first half to take a lead it would never lose on the way to a 55-52 victory.
‘‘We didn’t answer the bell ... We put ourselves in a little bit of a hole,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said about the first half.
The Falcons have lost five of their last six games and are 11-16 overall and 5-9 in the Mid-American Conference. The last four losses have been by a combined eight points.

The building continues for Petra Martin, now in her fourth season as the head swimming coach at Bowling Green State University.
The Falcons swim in the Mid-American Conference championships starting Thursday at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva.
Bowling Green, competing without a diving team, was third in the MAC last season. It was BG's best finish at the MAC since 2004 when the Falcons were also third. BG's best finish in the last two decades was a second in 1993.
''It has definitely been a journey. I kind of had to rework the whole culture of the program, and change things around. That obviously takes some time,'' Martin said. ''The first few years were definitely tough, implementing all of those changes, and getting the young women on board. It's the way we train, the way we approach things, how we want them to think, how we want them to practice.''
Martin said things started to come together last year, and the progress has continued this season even with a young team.
''They are a very talented group. They come here because they bought into what we were selling, and our philosophy of doing things,'' Martin said.
''The culture thing if you don't keep an eye on it, it's very easy to slip back to bad habits,'' she added.
This season, BG was 6-3 in dual meets, winning five straight duals to close out the season. The Falcons are ranked No. 50 in the country by

BUFFALO — In a game which featured five ties and 18 lead changes, the Bowling Green Falcon women’s basketball team pulled away from Buffalo in the final four minutes on the way to a 73-63 victory Saturday.
‘‘I knew today we would have to grind out some plays offensively. Buffalo is an extremely physical team,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said.
BG clinched no worse than the fourth seed for the Mid-American Conference tournament, which would earn the Falcons at least a double-bye and a game in the quarterfinals.
Buffalo’s final lead was at 57-56 with 4:20 remaining in the game.
