ORLANDO, Fla. - Ali Mann scored 16 points and Liz Honnegger added 15 as Bowling Green State University rolled to a 76-40 rout of Albany in women's basketball in the first round of the UCF Golden Knights Tournament.
All 12 Falcons played and 11 scored. BGSU cruised to a 30-14 lead at the first half. Nine BG players logged at least 15 minutes of action.
Amber Flynn contributed 12 points for the Falcons and a team-high nine rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench.
"Going into this game, we thought we could hurt them inside, so it is not a surprise that we were led in scoring by our three senior post players," BG coach Curt Miller said. "Overall, though, our energy and intensity need to be better if we want to win [tonight]."
The Falcons (2-1) advance to tonight's championship game at 5 p.m. against Fairleigh Dickinson, who defeated Central Florida, 77-64, last night.
Amanda Ward led Albany with 12 points.
