Did you know that BG had both male and female mascots? And that they are both on coke?

Your Northern Illinois Huskies (8-14, 4-6) @ the Bowling Green Falcons (11-11, 4-6)
Anderson Arena, Bowling Green, OH
6:00 PM (CST) Wednesday
Spread: BGSU -6.5, Last Ten: 5-5
TV: N/A, Radio: 670 The Score / WBGU 88.1

Once again, I'm giving a sliver of hope to Coach Patton and the NIU Men's Basketball team to get me excited about this team. A win here could be a huge boost in momentum going in to the final stretch of MAC West games and finally Cleveland for the MAC Tournament.

Speaking of drugs, the Falcons will be without welcome back after a 3-game suspension Danny McElroy, a 6'8" freshman who was suspended for possession of 6.57 grams of the green stuff. He wasn't seeing much playing time anyways.

Still on Bowling Green: the 6'9" 285 lb senior Otis Polk, who is averaging 7.1 rpg and 9.4 ppg.

Will they shoot 63% from three like Miami did? BG is only 302nd in the nation in launching up the tre-ball. Watch out for G Dee Brown (Yes, DEE BROWN) who shoots 47% and PG Joe "The Polish Prince" Jakubowski who shoots 36% from beyond the arc.
