Bowling Green women played Akron at noon, the men played Ohio at 6, and the hockey team played Ohio State at 7:05.
The men found themselves down one at the half, but this one was a tale of two halves. Thanks to Jordon Crawford scoring and finding his teammates for big-time buckets, the Falcons were able to hold off a late Ohio run to win the game 67-57. Crawford led all Falcons with 16 points. Torian Oglesby entered the game with a NCAA record 26 straight made field goals, but missed his first shot attempt in the first half.
As for the women, near the same result. The Lady Falcons were down 30-22 at the half, but were able to outscore the Zips by 12 in the 2nd half to win the game by a score of 62-58. A big 2nd half from Alexis Rogers was crucial for BG and included 19 points and 10 rebounds. Rogers finished with career highs in both points(26) and rebounds(14).
Lastly, the hockey team jumped out to a 2-0 lead against the Buckeyes, only to see Ohio State answer with two of their own. The game would go to a shootout after the game was tied at two at the end of regulation. Bowling Green would win the shootout 2-1.
