MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Junior Liz Honegger hit a 3-point field goal with just 9.2 seconds left, snapping a tie game and giving the Bowling Green State University women's basketball team a 57-52 win at Central Michigan University last night.
Three seconds later, BG's Lindsey Goldsberry stole the ball and put the game away by sinking two free throws.
The Falcons are 15-2 overall and a perfect 6-0 in the Mid-American Conference,
"Ironically, the play that we used to take the lead was a play that we thought was going to be there from the opening tip," said Falcon head coach Curt Miller.
"We struggled all game to get it, but we went back to it.
That was the play that we thought we could hurt them with. It took 39-plus minutes to get it, but to Liz's credit, having not played a great game, she was courageous enough to still want that shot. And, she made a big, big shot."
Junior Carin Horne led the Falcons with 14 points, while sophomore Kate Achter added 10.
BGSU took advantage of more opportunites at the free throw line, making 10-of-16 attempts to 3-of-6 for Central Michigan.
