BGSU BASKETBALL TEAMS OFF TO STRONG STARTS THIS SEASON
The Bowling Green State University men's basketball team is off to a hot start this season as the Falcons have compiled a 7-3 record through the first 10 games of the season, and the women’s basketball team defeated Xavier 63-53 Dec. 6 at the Stroh Center to improve to 7-1 on the season.
BGSU is working through its nonconference schedule, which includes victories over Drexel, South Dakota, Florida Gulf Coast and San Jose State. The Falcons finish out their nonconference schedule with visits to Old Dominion and Green Bay before hosting Lourdes at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 28 at the Stroh Center. The Mid-American Conference schedule starts Jan. 2, when BGSU plays host to Miami at 7 p.m.
Measuring up against nonconference foes is an important step for Coach Michael Huger’s young team, he said.
“All of our nonconference games are preparing us for MAC play,” Huger said. “A lot of our guys are freshmen and they don’t know what it’s like yet. That’s the ultimate goal right now — to get ready for the MAC.”
