    No. 25 Bowling Green edges Ohio to claim 15th straight

    ATHENS, Ohio (Ticker) -- Ali Mann scored 20 points and Liz Honegger had 14 and 12 rebounds as No. 25 Bowling Green held on for a 65-61 victory over Ohio in Mid-American Conference play.

    It was the 15th consecutive victory for the Falcons (24-2, 15-0 MAC), who are on their longest winning streak since a 20-game run in 1993-94.

    Casey McDowell scored 14 points and reserve Amber Flynn added eight while grabbing a career-high 10 rebounds for Bowling Green, which overcame less than stellar play in the second half to extend its conference winning streak to 20.

    The Falcons shot just 56 percent (14-of-25) from the free-throw line in the second half, but the Bobcats had three starters foul out down the stretch and could not muster enough late offense.

    Quintana Ward scored 14 points while Rachel Frederick chipped in 12 and 10 rebounds for Ohio (7-19, 4-11), which shot just 29 percent (8-of-27) from the floor in the first half.
