The Mules were nearly flawless in the first half, using runs of 10-0, 13-0 and 16-0 to take a 54-9 lead at the break. Even with their starters sitting for the majority of the second half, the margin ballooned to 56 with 8 minutes left.

Five players scored in double figures for Muhlenberg, led by sophomore Julie Kelly with a career-high 16 points. Sophomore Alita Zabrecky had 14 points, 7 rebounds 2 assists and 3 steals in only 10 minutes, and junior Alexandra Chili also scored 14 in only 12 minutes.
