Bowling Green Falcons

2012-13: 13-19 (7-9 MAC); lost to Miami, 63-52, in MAC first round
In-conference offense: 0.96 points per possession (9th)
In-conference defense: 0.97 points allowed per possession (5th)

The challenge for Bowling Green over the past several years has been that the MAC East has been far tougher than the West. Competing with the likes of Akron, Ohio, Kent State and even Buffalo has proved difficult. But this season represents an opportunity for coach Louis Orr's team, as Akron and Ohio both look less formidable than in seasons past.
