MULE MEN FALL AT GETTYSBURG

Two-time defending Centennial Conference champion Gettysburg closed the game on a 22-8 run to defeat Muhlenberg, 58-48, in men’s basketball action.

The Mules (6-6, 0-2) overcame a first half in which they shot a woeful 28.1 percent from the field and were outrebounded by 12 to take a 40-36 lead at the nine-minute mark of the second half. But the Bullets (7-8, 3-0) allowed only three field goals the rest of the way to defeat Muhlenberg for the fourth straight time at home.

Senior Toomey Anderson led the comeback effort by scoring 13 of his season-high 15 points in the first eight minutes of the second half.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL REMAINS UNDEFEATED IN CC

Sophomore Gwen Doyle scored all 13 of her points in the second half to supplement an outstanding team defensive effort as the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team remained undefeated in the Centennial Conference with a 65-57 win at Gettysburg.

The Mules (7-5, 3-0) held the Bullets (9-4, 2-2) to 28.6-percent shooting – including 1-for-15 from three-point range – in snapping their five-game winning streak. Muhlenberg has now defeated two of the CC West front-runners (Franklin & Marshall and Gettysburg), both on the road.

The game was tight throughout, with neither team leading by more than six points until the final two minutes. The Bullets led by three at halftime and took their final lead, at 51-50, on a free throw with 5:54 to play. Muhlenberg outscored Gettysburg, 15-6, the rest of the way.

Sophomore Becky Richmond (eight points, nine rebounds) gave the Mules the lead for good by hitting a jumper off an inbounds pass with 5:10 left. A turnaround jumper by junior Susan Marchiano (12 points) and a putback by freshman Stephanie Coluccini (seven points) made it 56-51 at the three-minute mark.

Doyle helped seal the win with a layup after a steal and three free throws in the final two minutes.
