Bowling Green women playing UMass for first time



Bowling Green at Massachusetts

Time: 5:30 p.m.

Records: BG is 7-3, UMass is 2-8

Radio: 88.1 FM

Series: First meeting

Notes: The Falcons look to reach a program milestone when they take a four-game win streak into their road game against the Minutewomen. … BG enters this contest with an all-time record of 699-380 and looks to become the first Mid-American Conference women’s program to reach 700 victories. … After this contest the UMass men will host Ohio at the Mullins Center. … This is the Minutewomen’s first home game since Nov. 25. … The two wins by UMass this season came against Kent State and Ohio. … Senior Jasmine Watson leads UMass in scoring (14.3) and adds 6.7 rebounds per contest. … Bowling Green’s win Sunday against Wyoming saw Chrissy Steffen (21 points) and Alexis Rogers (20) both score at least 20 points. It marked the first time two Falcons reached that plateau in the same game since that same pair turned the trick at Youngstown State last year. … All five BG starters reached double figures for the first time since a win against over Fairleigh Dickinson in 2006.
