GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Colorado Mesa’s Katrina Selsor scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and two others joined her in double figures to lead the Mavericks to a 67-59 victory in both teams’ Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference opener Friday at Brownson Arena.
Kelsey Sigl led the Mavericks with 15 points and Amy Weitzel added 10 as Mesa improved to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in the RMAC.
Chadron State, which falls to 0-5 and 0-1 in the conference, will play at Western State today (Saturday) at 6 p.m.
Despite the loss, there were bright spots for the Eagles, particularly the play of Sadie Waugh, a junior center from Paxton, Neb., who scored a career-high 18 points and added five assists. Waugh hit six of 12 shots from the field, all six of her free throws, and limited Sigl, who was hitting 55 percent of her shots to average 23 points a game, to 15 points on four of seven shooting.
Also for Chadron State, Kaitlin Petri scored 17 and dished out four assists, and Marla Munsen scored eight.
Neither team shot well – the Eagles were 20 of 64 from the field (31.3 percent) and the Mavericks hit 22 of 61 (36.1 percent) – but Mesa made up the slack by scoring 17 points off 16 turnovers and received 15-second chance points compared to 10 for CSC.
Both teams also struggled from long range. The Eagles made just two of 16 and the Mavericks sank three of 13.
CSC 28 31 – 59
CMU 32 35 – 67
