Malique Killing Junior Malique Killing of the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team was named to the D3hoops.com All-Mid-Atlantic Region second team.

The all-region honor is the first for Killing, but not his first time represented on the site’s postseason honor roll. In 2012, he was named regional rookie of the year.

Killing, a three-time All-Centennial Conference second-team selection, broke his own school record with 542 points this season and averaged 21.68 points per game, just a shade off the school record of 21.73. Through games of March 9, he ranked 16th in Division III in scoring average.

Killing led the CC in scoring for the second straight year and also paced the league in free-throw percentage (.876) while tying for the lead in assists (90) and tying for third with 37 steals.

During the season, Killing was named Scotty Wood Tournament MVP and scored his 1,000th and 1,500th career points. He vaulted into seventh place in school history with 1,505 points and needs 284 in his senior season to break the all-time mark that has stood for 43 years.

His record-breaking ways reached a crescendo in late January, when he became the first Mule – and just the second player in the CC – to score 30 or more points in three consecutive games, culminating in a 35-point effort that helped Muhlenberg pull out a 75-72 victory at regular-season champion Dickinson, which went on to reach the NCAA Tournament “Elite Eight.”
