 ESTERO, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2017) – The Bucs concluded day three of the Gulf Coast Showcase and fell 87-79 to Western Michigan on Sunday morning. This was ETSU’s third meeting against the Broncos since 1982. Sophomore guard Jada Craig (Winston-Salem, N.C.) recorded a new personal best of 11 points.

The Bucs hit their last three shots before Western Michigan went on a 10-0 run and kept the Bucs scoreless for three minutes. Sadasia Tipps (Hickory, N.C.) ended the scoring draught for ETSU with a jumper with just over a minute left in the first quarter.

In the second quarter Malloree Schurr (Montgomery, Texas) kicked off the scoring for the Bucs after hitting two free throws, to put ETSU within four. From there, the Bucs kept the Broncos scoreless for four minutes. Britney Snowden (Pensacola, Fla.) had a tremendous game in the paint for the Bucs. She recorded a new personal best of 11 points since transferring to ETSU. To put the Bucs just two points away, Snowden boxed out the Broncos to get a rebound and put the ball in the hoop. Tianna Tarter (Johnson City, Tenn.) was fouled shortly after and made both free throws to tie the game at 27. Erica Haynes-Overton (Nashville, Tenn.) then put the Bucs ahead after she picked up a steal and drove to the hoop for a layup. During this span, ETSU went on an 8-0 run. The Broncos fought back, but Haynes-Overton’s free throw put the Bucs ahead by one at the half.
