Usually BGSU is a solid candidate to knock off a ranked team, but the Boilermakers defense was just too good and didn't give the Falcons anything. They only trailed 25-18 at halftime but there was never an opportunity or a scoring run to bring them back in it. That's the first time Bowling Green women were held under 50 points in 23 games, dating back to Creighton last year. Danielle Havel led the team with nine points.
Now sitting at 2-1, the Falcons head west to Vegas to play Villanova in the Lady Rebel Roundup. That starts Friday.
