chili nets player of the week honor

Alexandra Chili For the second time this season and the fifth time in her career, junior Alexandra Chili of the Muhlenberg womenís basketball team was named player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Chili averaged 27.7 points per game in a 2-1 week for the Mules. She scored the teamís last seven points, including the game-winning basket with 1.3 seconds left, in a 61-59 win at Ursinus. Chili also tied a school record with her fourth career 30-point game in an overtime loss at Johns Hopkins, and she capped the week with a 25-point, 5-assist, 0-turnover performance in only 22 minutes vs. Washington.

By scoring 32, 26 and 25 points in the three games, Chili became the first Muhlenberg player to reach the 25-point mark in three consecutive games since Anne Searles in 1986-87.

For the season, Chili leads the CC in scoring at 21.8 points per game, more than five ppg more than the second-leading scorer. She has made a CC-leading 51 three-pointers and is third in the CC in free-throw percentage (.840).

Chiliís scoring surge last week put her into 25th on the CC all-time scoring list with an even 1,300 points. With 224 career three-pointers, she is just 19 away from breaking the CC all-time record.

The Mules are 12-4 overall and 8-3 in the CC, a game behind first-place Johns Hopkins in the loss column. The two teams are scheduled to meet in Memorial Hall on Saturday with first place on the line.
