An aggressive approach has led to the homecourt advantage in the current WNIT run by the Bowling Green women’s basketball team.
The Falcons will be playing their fourth home game in the tournament Monday against Rutgers in the Stroh Center. Tipoff is 7 p,m.
‘‘I like to make it aggressively realistic,’’ Chris Kingston, BG’s athletics director said on Saturday about the bidding process for the WNIT.
‘‘You bid for every round, based on a guarantee of ticket sales,’’ Kingston added. ‘‘You want to win the bid to have the homecourt advantage, but you also need to be fairly realistic (about attendance).
‘‘I could bid 4,400 or whatever it is, a sellout, but that’s not really what we’re going to have. Then I am going to spend $30,000 above and beyond.’’

There were no tears being shed by the Bowling Green Falcon women’s basketball team Monday evening at the Stroh Center.
Instead, the Falcons’ players and coaches were mad because they were unable to extend their season into the semifinals of the WNIT.
Rutgers ended Bowling Green’s dream, posting a 55-50 victory before 2,649 fans.
‘‘We had our chances tonight, we really had our chances,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘There weren’t a lot of tears tonight. We had a lot of mad kids because we had our chances to win.  PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘Selfishly we wanted one more,’’ Roos added. ‘‘With that said, you really have to give credit to Rutgers. They really put pressure on us in the halfcourt.’’
Bowling Green battled to the end, and had a good look in the final seconds to force overtime, but the shot did not fall and Rutgers held on for the victory.

The weather forced the Bowling Green football Falcons indoors Saturday afternoon, but it didn’t slow them down.
The Falcons ran 129 plays in just under 75 minutes at Perry Field House in their second scrimmage of the spring.
‘‘We were faster. We still had a lot of penalties which is disappointing. That has to do with a lot of people playing, and you are getting a lot of evaluations of a lot of guys,’’ BG head coach Dino Babers said about the difference from the previous week’s scrimmage at Perry Stadium.
‘‘The defense really won the last scrimmage. This scrimmage was balanced,’’ Babers continued. ‘‘We have a really, really good defense. We need an offense to come along and match the expertise of that defense.’’
Matt Johnson threw two touchdown passes to Chris Pohlman and one each to Gehrig Dieter, Teo Redding, and Heath Jackson. James Knapke hit Roger Lewis for a long scoring pass down the right sideline, and Travis Greene ran for a score.
‘‘They are starting to figure it out, but there is still a long way to go,’’ Babers said. ‘‘They are starting to figure out the little things they need to do to make us move even faster.
