The second piece of good news for Falcon hoops was announced today, as Coach Louis Orr received a 2 year extension until 2013-2014, giving him five more years at the helm of the Falcons.
From the BGSU release:
“Louis has done a tremendous job of molding our men’s basketball team into a group that believes it can win and compete for championships,” Christopher said. “His first two seasons have been positive steps forward. We are now looking forward to Louis and his staff continuing to build our men’s program long term.”
The 2008-09 squad won five more games than it did a year prior, including four more MAC wins, and exceeded preseason expectations when the Falcons were picked to finish third in the East Division. Over the course of the season, Orr’s team developed into a tough-minded squad that made a remarkable transformation. After losing seven consecutive road games to start the year, Bowling Green edged Ohio by one point on the road and went on to win six consecutive road MAC games, the longest streak in the conference in seven years.
I concur. He is a good coach and a good fit for this program. I think he is recruiting effectively and is also good at preparing his team to play. He was a good find, and it is my belief that he will eventually get our team into the Big Dance.
Congrats to Coach Orr.
