Bowling Green played well offensively in this one. They averaged 1.11 points per possession on 47% shooting from field. Kaden Metheny led the way, putting up 28 points. It wasn’t enough though, as the Falcons was unable to gather the momentum to get past the Spartans.

These teams will have little time to prep for their next test, as each plays next on December 17. Norfolk State takes on Hampton, while Bowling Green squares off with UT Martin. The Spartans will look to keep their winning streak intact. On the other side, the Falcons will get a shot to recover from this loss.
