BG reinstates McElroy
Danny McElroy, a freshman on the Bowling Green men's basketball team, has been reinstated.
He was cited for possession of marijuana last month and missed three games. He was in uniform for BG's game against Northern Illinois on Wednesday, but did not play.
"Sometimes you have to make sure you look at a situation every way you can and that takes time," BG lead coach Louis Orr said after Wednesday's game.
"He made a bad decision. He violated team rules. I'm not going into any detail," Orr continued. "And he was in a bad position, basically, and that cannot be condoned."
Orr said when McElroy's case was being looked into by Bowling Green, "there was some things that came out of it that could have been worse, but they ended up being something positive ... some things I can't go into details because of his privacy."
McElroy has played in 18 games for the Falcons this season, scoring 33 points and grabbing 24 rebounds in 131 minutes of action.
"We hope this is a life lesson for him and he can go on to be a productive Bowling Green student-athlete," Orr said. - CARLE
BG offers ticket special, hosts Pink Zone game
Bowling Green Falcon fans can take advantage of a special 2 for $10 ticket offer Saturday, when the women's basketball and hockey teams are in action at home.
Available either in advance over the phone (877-BGSUTICKET) or walk-up the day of the game, fans can get a ticket for both games for $10. Fans who already have a ticket for one of the two games can simply present it in-person/walk-up for a $5 ticket to the other game. Offer only valid for a $5 ticket to each event (not two $5 tickets to one of the events).
The Falcon women take on Ohio at 2 p.m. at Anderson Arena for their annual Pink Zone/National Girls & Women in Sports Day game, and the Falcon hockey team hosts No. 1 Miami at 5:05 p.m. at the Ice Arena.
The Pink Zone game for the women's basketball team is in support of breast cancer awareness.
All fans are encouraged to wear Pink in support of the initiative. As in years past, the Falcon women will be wearing special Pink T-shirts during pre-game warmups and "Colleges Against Cancer," the American Cancer Society's on-campus student organization, will have an informational table in the main lobby of Anderson Arena through halftime.
