Women's basketball clinches top four seed with win over Buffalo

The Falcons hung on throughout a sloppy win, and in doing so, they clinched a top four seed for the Mid-American Conference tournament.

With that in mind, if the Falcons earn the three or four seed, they have to win three games to win the championship, if they seed the one or two spots, they are automatically advanced to the semifinals and would only have to win two games to win the title.

In the team's 62-52 victory over Buffalo, BG had to play catch-up right out of the gate.

The Bulls got the first possession and scored, then the Falcons almost immediately turned it over, resulting in a 0-4 deficit within the first minute.

BG trailed the entire first half, tying it up a few times, but never surpassing them - they did come within a point, 29-28, by the end of the half.

The Falcons picked up their game in the second half, battling for their first lead all game. By the time the last 20 minutes concluded, Jessica Slagle scored 19 points and both Chrissy Steffen and Alexis Rogers posted double-doubles.

BG hits the road for back-to-back road games against Akron and Ohio for their upcoming contests.
