HOOPS TEAMS FEAST ON THE ROAD
Men Ride Hot Start

Junior Jimmy O’Brien scored nine of his 12 points in a game-opening 19-4 run as the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team downed Arcadia, 79-63, in its first road game of the season.

Sophomore Jeff Stewart had another huge game for the Mules (2-1), posting his second straight double-double with 26 points and 11 rebounds.

Muhlenberg shot a sizzling 56.3 percent from the field in the first half and led by as many as 22 points (40-18). Although the Mules cooled off in the second half, they held the Knights (0-3) to 34.5-percent shooting for the game.

The closest Arcadia could get was seven points, at 53-46 with 11:22 left to play. The margin was nine, 63-54, before Muhlenberg kept the Knights from scoring for almost seven minutes, going on a 10-0 run to clinch the game.

Stewart did most of his damage from the foul line, sinking 14 free throws in 15 attempts.

Women Win CC Opener

Junior Stephanie Coluccini and sophomore Meghan Courtney each scored a career-high 15 points to lead the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team to a 81-76 win at Franklin & Marshall in its Centennial Conference opener.

The Mules (3-0, 1-0) appeared to have the game well in hand when they took a 25-point lead, 72-47, on Courtney’s first career three-pointer with 7:58 left in the game. Muhlenberg made only one field goal the rest of the game, however, and the Diplomats (0-3, 0-1) went on a 21-2 run to draw to within six at the two-minute mark.

The Mules led by eight with 20 ticks on the clock, but a rare four-point play – a made shot and two free throws from an off-the-ball foul – halved the margin. With the score 80-76, junior Kristen Piscadlo hit a free throw to account for the final score.

Coluccini also had 10 rebounds for her first career double-double and tied a career high with four assists. Piscadlo finished with 11 points, while junior Lacie Smith scored six points and tied a career high with 11 rebounds.
