MAC Women's Basketball Review: Comeback, Payback

MAC women's basketball notes:

BOWLING GREEN 62, AKRON 58 — Well, this is how you win the hard way. BGSU had to overcome being down as many as 15 points late in the first half but finally turned it around thanks to a 40-28 second half. Alexis Rogers scored 19 of her 26 points on the second half, also pulling down 14 rebounds. Jessica Slagle had 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists (along with two blocks) to help power the comeback.

For UA it's a disappointing loss, one that could've sent a shockwave through the MAC East. Sina King gave the Zips 17 good points and Jasmine Mushington had 15 points. Both of them combined for 20 points in the first half. But overall they went cold in the second half and UA got overpowered on the boards.

KENT STATE 68, OHIO 65 — A bit of a surprise here, although I'm sure being at home helped. But this is just KSU's second win and I'm sure Bob Lindsay can breathe a sigh of relief that his women got a good win, finally.

Two of his starters registered double-doubles. Diamond Beckford had 19/10 while Trisha Krewson gave them 13/12. French import Tamzin Barrollhet had a career-best 20 points as well and overall the Flashes got this done thanks to strong rebounding and not giving the Bobcats many second chances.

OHIO was led by Tenishia Benson with 15 points, Shavon Robinson with 14 and Ashley Fowler with 10.

MIAMI 72, BUFFALO 51 — If the RedHawks were underwhelming in any way, it was that Courtney Osborn followed up her 48-point game with a measly 23 points. Bah! Kirsten Olowinski paced them with 14 points and 14 rebounds and the MU defense basically let Brittany Hedderson try to score 73 to beat them. She only got to 26, sadly, and no other Bull got beyond six points.

Ball State (1-0) at WMU (1-0)
CMU (1-0) at Toledo (0-1)
