Men's Basketball: A second glance at Bowling Green and how to watch

Ohio’s regular season is winding down, and it will spend the final stretch before the Mid-American Conference Tournament on the road. 

Its first stop? The Stroh Center, where it will face Bowling Green for a rematch Tuesday night.

The Bobcats (23-6, 14-4 MAC) are on the hunt for a win. They’ve lost two of their last three games and are tied for second place in the MAC with Kent State. The Falcons (12-17, 5-13 MAC) are on a six-game skid and are in danger of missing the MAC Tournament altogether.

Here’s a second glance at the Falcons ahead of Tuesday’s matchup:

Bowling Green since Game 1

The Falcons have gone 4-10 since they last faced Ohio in mid-January. They’ve lost their last six games, including an 11-point loss to Western Michigan last Saturday. In their loss to Buffalo on Feb. 15, the Falcons gave up 112 points, a program record that had stood since 1955.

Bowling Green has also undergone a shakeup in the roster this month. On Feb. 16, forward Joe Reece and guard Myron Gordon were dismissed from the program for what was described as a “failure to meet program standards,” according to a statement released by the program. Gordon and Reece were Bowling Green’s second- and third-best scorers before their dismissal.

Player to watch

Diggs — The graduate has settled in at home during Bowling Green’s February schedule. In three of Bowling Green’s last four home games, Diggs has cracked double figures. Diggs recorded 19 points, four rebounds and two blocks in Bowling Green’s latest game against Western Michigan.
