MIAMI - A 16-1 run early in the second half helped Bowling Green State University's women's basketball team to a 67-56 victory over Florida International University last night.
Bowling Green is 7-0, the best start in school history.
The Falcons trailed 28-26 at halftime. With the score tied 31-31, Lindsey Goldsberry hit a 3-pointer that started the 16-1 run.
Ali Mann had seven of the Falcons' points during that spurt.
Kate Achter led BGSU with 20 points. She was 10-for-13 from the free throw line.
Mann added 16 points, and Carin Horne had 12.
"That was an unbelievable performance," BGSU coach Curt Miller said. "We played a gutty second half. We stepped up and made shots. [FIU] is a quality basketball team that has won 82 percent of their home games over the last 20 years. No one comes in here and beats this team, and I can't be more proud of our kids for gutting it out. That was a great win for us."
