Jackie Motycka - Photo Courtesy BGSU Athletic Dept.The most prolific scorer in the history of the basketball program (men's or women's) at Bowling Green, Jackie Motycka is the most recognizable name in a program which has a tradition as rich as any in the athletic department. Her 2,122 points is the highest figure ever at BGSU, and ranks second only to Ohio University's Caroline Mast in MAC history.

One of only two players in league history to earn first team All-MAC honors all four years of her college career (Mast is the other), Motycka was the Player of the Year in the MAC twice (1986-87 and 1987-88) leading the league with a 20.2 points per game average her junior season.

The Convoy, Ohio native led the Falconsto three consecutive regular season MAC titles and three straight league tournament titles to conclude her career. She helped BG become the first MAC women's team to win an NCAA Tournament game with their 69-59 triumph over Cincinnati in 1989.

A durable and consistent player, Motycka started 115 games during her career, playing in 117 of a possible 119 contests. She scored in double figures 107 times and scored 20 or more points in 43 contests. Bowling Green compiled a 96-23 record during her career, a 78-13 mark during her last three seasons, including a 46-2 record in MAC play in those three seasons. Motycka averaged 18.1 points and 6.8 rebounds while shooting 51.7% from the field and 80.8% from the free throw line in her career.

She was inducted to the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994.
