CLEVELAND - Three Bowling Green State University women's basketball players earned All-Mid-American Conference honors in voting by the coaches.
Seniors Jillian Halfhill and Alexis Rogers are first-team selections and sophomore Erica Donovan is an honorable mention selection.
This marks the first time in five years that BGSU has had two players named to the first team (Tracy Pontius and Lauren Prochaska in 2009).
Halfhill is averaging 13.3 points per game this season, ranking second on the team (behind Rogers). She is 14th in the MAC in scoring, and ranks among the league's top-10 players in assists per game, with 3.2.  Halfhill leads the conference in 3-point field-goal percentage, at 43.2 percent, and is seventh in that category in the most recent NCAA rankings.
Halfhill is third in the league in 3-pointers made per game, fourth in assist-to-turnover ratio and ninth in free-throw percentage.
Rogers earns all-league first-team honors for the second time in the last three years.
Rogers leads the Falcons in scoring and ranks second in rebounding, with 14.9 points and 8.2 rebounds per contest. She is eighth in the league in scoring and ninth in rebounds.
Rogers is second in the conference in field-goal percentage, having hit 156-of-292 shots (53.4 percent) this year to date. Rogers also ranks seventh in the MAC in free-throw percentage.

DEKALB, Ill. — The Bowling Green Falcon men’s basketball team forced overtime Monday in the first round of the Mid-American Conference tournament.
However, Northern Illinois was able to prevail, 54-51 to end the Falcons’ season.
‘‘This is another example of how we have had some close, tough games where we came up just short,’’ said BG head coach Louis Orr. ‘‘When you get two teams like us and Northern playing defense, every possession is crucial.’’
BG’s Jehvon Clarke hit a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. Richaun Holmes had shot a 3-pointer from the top of the key with just under six seconds remaining. The ball hit the front of the rim, and Cameron Black tipped the ball out to Clarke on the right wing and he converted.
‘‘After that shot, we were in a good position to win it in overtime. It gave us the adrenaline and momentum going into overtime,’’ Clarke said. ‘‘We just couldn’t capitalize in overtime, and make the necessary plays to win the game.’’

BG moved into a tie with Alaska (Fairbanks) for third place in the WCHA, pending the outcome of Alaska’s home game against Alaska-Anchorage later Saturday night.
But Alaska already was guaranteed the third seed for the playoffs, based on its having more league wins than BG. The Falcons are the No. 4 seed.

AKRON — In a game that could have gone either way and very nearly did, Bowling Green was able to prevail over Akron Saturday afternoon.
Jillian Halfhill’s driving layup with 6.6 seconds remaining in the game lifted the Falcon women’s basketball team past the Zips, 77-76.
With the win and Eastern Michigan’s overtime victory over Central Michigan, the Falcons are the outright Mid-American Conference champions and have earned the No. 1 seed for the MAC tournament.
“We wanted this for our staff. We wanted this for our team. We wanted this for our fans,” said an emotional BG head coach Jennifer Roos. “I really wanted this. A lot of people told us we couldn’t do this. I was told I couldn’t do this, and we did.”
