Men’s basketball has a rough streak
Ferris basketball has lost five games straight heading into the GLIAC tournament, marking the worst losing streak the Bulldogs have faced all season. They look to turn this around at Findlay in the quarter finals of the GLIAC tournament.

At the start of the calendar year, Ferris beat the Oilers 72-69 and proceeded to tear up the league. They won 11 of 13 games before a 91-84 home loss to Northwood. Since then, Ferris has fallen to 13-9 and fifth place in the GLIAC.

Ferris handed the Oilers their only loss in the month of January. Findlay matched the Bulldogs’ success after and kept the train going when Ferris fell off the tracks.
The game tips off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1.
