WMU women lose in overtime at San Francisco

Dec. 12, 1999

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Western Michigan University women's basketball team dropped a tough 70-65 decision in overtime at San Francisco on Sunday, Dec. 12. With the loss, the Broncos' record falls to 2-3 on the season.

Sunday's game was the first in a four-game, 10-day road trip. The Broncos play next at Nevada-Reno on Wednesday, Dec. 15. They will also travel to nationally-ranked Stanford (Dec. 18) and to Iowa State (Dec. 20) during the current road stretch.

In Sunday's contest at San Francisco, Bronco rookie Kristin Koetsier led all players with 24 points and 13 rebounds. She was a perfect 10 for 10 from the free throw line. Koetsier fouled out of the contest with three minutes remaining in overtime.

Senior Danielle Mueller made her second consecutive start of the year and contributed 18 points. She was 7 of 15 from the field. Classmate Shelsea Erving was the only other Bronco in double figures in scoring. She had 11 points in 31 minutes of action.

The Broncos do not play at home again until Jan. 5, 2000, when they host Toledo at 7 p.m. at University Arena. That contest is also the Mid-American Conference season opener for WMU.
