Cailee Fruge posted an assist. She missed most of the game after an injury in the first quarter.
Bowling Green coach Barry Seal praised the effort of his team.
“These kids fought hard the entire game. Overall, that was an unbelievable effort. They bought into what I sold them. They had never stayed in a 1-2-2 zone the entire game and they did this game. My goal for Bowling Green basketball is no quit and we showed that and this team reflected that,” Seal said.
Bowling Green had two seniors this year in Fruge and Robertson.
“Two great kids that have been to the state tournament four years in a row,” Seal said. “The leadership and role models these kids bring, I was glad my youngest daughter (KaKa Seal) got to be around them. They will be sadly missed from this program.”

Bowling Green’s Allie McCain attempts a shot in a game this season. She had 11 points, five boards and an assist on Wednesday.
