BG women deserve to have large crowds

Another highly successful women’s basketball season at Bowling Green State University has entered its
final phase with four regular season games remaining plus the Mid-American Conference tournament and
hopefully further post-season action.
The Falcons play their final two home games at the Stroh Center this week, hosting Kent State at 7 p.m.
on Thursday and Ohio University at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. This team deserves large crowds as they
conclude another highly successful season. Despite playing virtually the entire year with a nine-player
roster due to three season-ending injuries, the Falcons are 23-3 overall and 13-1 in the Mid-American
Conference. Nineteen of the 23 wins have come by 10 or more points including double digit wins over Ohio
State and Michigan.
Coach Jennifer Roos, who deserves consideration for national coach of the year, and her staff have done a
fabulous job of melding together a group of players led by seniors Jillian Halfhill, Jill Stein and
Alexis Rogers that our community can be very proud of for their performance on and off the court.
It sounds like winter is not ready to release its grip on Northwest Ohio, so come out to the Stroh Center
this week and warm up by rooting the Falcons on to two more victories!
