      Roughly two weeks ago BGSU women's basketball head coach Curt Miller won his 250th career game. A few days later it was discovered that he also suffered a mild stroke during while accomplishing that feat.

      On Saturday Miller returned after a leave of absence to lead the Falcons to a 67-56 victory over Western Michigan.

      "I had as much anxiety today...as I've had in years." Miller said after the game. "I was very, very nervous."

      Miller said when received the surprising diagnosis he questioned whether his days of coaching were over.

      "I'm a 43 year old [man]. Don't drink, don't smoke, it's a little bit shocking and you wonder...if you just ended you're coaching career."

      Miller was a little more toned than usual on the sidelines, but was very active in the latter parts of the game. Speaking of which, the win was the Falcons' 20th of the season.

      Sophomore Alexis Rogers led the way with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Senior Jessica Slagle and junior Chrissy Steffen scored 15 and 13 respectively.

      The ladies have the week off before travelling to Toledo on Saturday, February 11th. The Lady Rockets were also victorious on Saturday winning 66-55 at Kent State.
