Indianapolis 500 winner and current NASCAR driver Sam Hornish Jr. will be the guest of honor Sunday (Dec. 12) at the Falcon men's home basketball game against Florida International as part of Sam Hornish Jr. Day.
Hornish, a northwest Ohio native who lives in Napoleon, will sign autographs prior to tip-off and have the Indianapolis 500 trophy with him. During halftime, he'll be presented with a check for his foundation, which helps a number of projects throughout the region.
Along with Sam Hornish Jr. Day, the game will serve as a "Pack the House" game for the men's basketball program. It is Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day, in which all BGSU faculty and staff receive two free tickets. It is also Falcon Club Appreciation Day - all Falcon Club members can purchase $4 general admission tickets. Plus, the first 500 fans through the doors will receive the third of 13 collectable All-Anderson Team trading cards.

BGSU's Prochaska sets NCAA record for free throws
- The Blade
Falcon women's basketball player Lauren Prochaska can add another achievement to her growing list - NCAA record holder. Last night, Prochaska went six-for-six from the free throw line, giving her 67 consecutive free throws, which breaks the NCAA Division-I mark set nearly two decades ago.
Prochaska also scored 18 points and had a game-high nine rebounds in the win over Western Kentucky University. With the victory, the Falcons improve to 9-1 on the season. The 9-1 mark ties the Falcons' best 10-game start in program history.
