BG women's basketball remains undefeated

Someone had to lose.

This time it was the Miami Redhawks - now 4-1, after their 61-58 defeat to the reigning Mid-American Conference leaders - the Falcons.

BG did exactly what head coach Curt Miller asked them to do; they kept Miami off the foul line. They didn't have the chance at any shots from the line in the first half, but they got 10 attempts in the second.

Alexis Rogers posted another double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds, followed by Chrissy Steffen who contributed 12 points.

Both teams alternated shots in the first half, until the Falcons pulled away with a lead right before half time.

BG led in every statistical category in the first half and ended the first 20 minutes with a 32-23 lead over the Redhawks.

Just the opposite took place in the second half.

The Redhawks out did the Falcons in every way except in baskets. Miami tried to catch BG and even scored more points in the last 20 minutes, but it wasn't enough to come away with a win.

The Falcons held Courtney Osborne to just 14 points on the night. Miami's go-to girl was Hannah Robertson with 19 points.

With a perfect record in the MAC, BG heads home to take on the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Sunday. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m.
