Some days you have it, and some days you don't. On Wednesday night, Bowling Green sophomore Zack Denny had it and then some.
Denny, who had played a grand total of four games in his career and had a career total of fifteen points, exploded in Bowling Green's 70-55 win over Wright State. The sophomore played 27 minutes and scored eighteen points, going 6-9 from the floor and a perfect 4-4 from beyond the arc. He also added seven boards, another career high.
Spencer Parker had a solid game as well, putting up fourteen points and six rebounds along with three steals. Richaun Holmes flirted with a double with nine points and eight rebounds. Holmes also blocked five shots (ho-hum).
The Falcons did well in just about every facet of the game. Even though their fourteen turnovers were a little high, Wright State committed more (18). The Falcons played some great defense coming down the stretch. With ten minutes left in the game, Bowling Green was only up 49-46. Bowling Green went on a 15-3 run over the next seven minutes which sealed the game. Over the remainder of the contest, Wright State's only points came from the free throw line.
Crishawn Hopkins led the Raiders with thirteen points. Wright State didn't feature another player in double digits, though Joe Thomasson sniffed a double-double as well with nine points and nine rebounds.
The Falcons get nearly a week off before their next game against Southeast Missouri State in the Stroh Center. The Redhawks are 1-2 on the year with losses to San Diego and Loyola Marymount.
