MARCHIANO NAMED CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Sophomore center Susan Marchiano of the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team has been named co-player of the week by the Centennial Conference for the second time this season.

Susan Marchiano Marchiano was honored after recording double-doubles in CC wins against Dickinson and Johns Hopkins. She averaged 19.5 points and 13.5 rebounds in the two games, both Mule wins.

with 14 and 11 points, respectively, to lead the 15th-ranked Muhlenberg women’s basketball team to an 80-56 win against Haverford.

With the win, the Mules (18-2, 10-2) clinched a playoff spot and remained tied for first place with Swarthmore in the Centennial Conference East Division. The Garnet defeated Johns Hopkins, 85-82, in double overtime.

The win extended the Mules’ school-record home-court winning streak to 20 and gave them 11 wins at home on the season, tying the school record set in the 1999-2000 year. They need one more win to tie the school record of 19 wins in a season, set in 1995-96. Muhlenberg also made three three-pointers in the game to break the record of 105 in a season, set in 1997-98.

The Mules led 7-6 early on and then held the Fords (3-17, 1-11) without a field goal for nearly seven minutes, going on a 21-2 run to take a 20-point lead. Muhlenberg led by 30 at halftime and by as many as 38 in the second half.

Friedman also had a game-high nine rebounds and four blocked shots.
