GAME NOTES: Both Bowling Green and Wright State take win streaks into Sunday's matchup at the Nutter Center. Bowling Green is experiencing a three-game win streak, the team's longest since the 2011-12 season, while Wright State is on a two-game upswing.

The Raiders haven't lost a home game yet in six games in Dayton. That's bad news for the Falcons, who have just one win on the road this season.

The three-game win streak the Falcons are currently on is the longest since the team went on to win four in a row in 2011-12. Since the 2010-11 season, Bowling Green has gone on four three-plus game winning streaks. The Falcons most recently defeated Detroit, 64-62, on Dec. 22. Wright State has won two in a row, including a 61-49 decision on Dec. 21 against UMKC.

Bowling Green fended off Detroit for the close win at the Stroh Center, where the Falcons improved to 4-1 on the season. Although Bowling Green turned the ball over three times on the team's first five possessions and found itself in a 5-0 hole early on, the Falcons eventually battled back to take the final lead. Redshirt-junior Anthony Henderson sparked his team with a team-high 15 points, while Jehvon Clarke added 14 of his own and eight assists in the win. The third BGU player in double figures was Richaun Holmes, who scored 13 points and added five rebounds. All three players shot 50 percent from the field.

Bowling Green's leading scorer is Holmes, who nets an average of 13.9 points per contest. He also leads the team in blocked shots per game with an eye- popping 3.4 rejections. Henderson is the team leader in steals (2.3 per game), while Cameron Black leads the team in rebounds (7.7 per game). The last time Bowling Green met Wright State was last December at the Stroh Center. Bowling Green held the Raiders scoreless in the final 5:47 for the win, 54-41.

The Raiders got a bit of a scare from UMKC last week, as Wright State built a 19-point second-half lead before the Kangaroos came surging back. Whatever comeback attempt UMKC had fell short, and the Raiders held on to win, 61-49. As a team, the Raiders shot 44 percent from the floor, including 14 from three-point range and hit 23-of-28 from the free-throw line. The Kangaroos were 3-of-20 from beyond the 3-point arc, and shot a team total of 35 percent. Cole Darling led Wright State in scoring with 15 points, 12 of which came in the second half. Jerran Young nearly added a double-double with nine points and 11 rebounds.

Senior A.J. Pacher is the Raiders' leading scorer, although that isn't saying much as he's the only player averaging double figures for the team with 10.5 points per game. J.T. Yoho is behind Pacher with 9.6 per game, and Miles Dixon comes in at 9.5. Still, the Raiders average over 71 points per game, which truly shows that any player can step up for any given game. Young averages four rebounds per game, while Pacher leads the team at 4.4 per outing.

Bowling Green will be missing guard Chauncey Orr, who is out with a sprained knee. Orr is a crucial part of the Falcons' roster when healthy, and his absence will be noted against a team unbeaten at home this season.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Wright State 74, Bowling Green 67
