Ball St. 64, Bowling Green 59

Randy Davis scored a game-high 18 points to help Ball State win

its fourth straight by hanging onto a 64-59 victory despite a late

run by Bowling Green on Thursday night.

The Cardinals (12-9, 6-3 Mid-American) led almost the entire

game, falling behind only briefly midway through the first

half.

But the Falcons (11-10, 4-5) came back from a 13-point deficit

late in the game and pulled within two points, 59-61, on a

3-pointer by Dee Brown with 13 seconds to go.

It would be the Falcons’ last basket, however, as Jarrod Jones

put in two more free throw for the Cardinals and Malik Perry added

one more from the line.

Jones finished with a double-double, scoring 11 points and

grabbing 10 rebounds. Terrence Watson scored 14 points and pulled

down nine from the boards.

Brown and Joe Jakubowski led the Falcons with 13 points

each.
