BASKETBALL TEAMS SWEEP WASHINGTON
Another Record for Mule Women

After winning its first 10 games, then losing three straight, the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team is once again streaking in the right direction. The Mules beat Washington (Md.), 101-54.

Senior center Jill Friedman hit nine of her 11 shots for a game-high 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Fifteen other Mules scored, led by senior Becky Richmond with 10. She also had eight boards.

Muhlenberg hit 11 three-pointers to set a team record with 152 in a season, eclipsing last year’s total of 144. Junior Gwen Doyle led the squad with three threes for nine points.

The Mules (12-3, 7-2) never trailed in the game and used runs of 13-0 and 9-0 in the game’s first 12 minutes to build a 38-13 lead. They hit half of their shots in the first half and took a 56-32 lead into the locker room.

Sophomore guard Kristen Piscadlo started the 13-point run with back-to-back three-pointers. She was most effective when she gave the ball to her teammates, totaling nine assists with just one turnover. She made five of the Mules’ 23 steals, while Doyle added three.

Men Break Three-point Mark

The Muhlenberg men’s basketball team opened up the second half with a 13-0 run and never looked back, defeating Washington (Md.), 95-77, at Memorial Hall.

The Mules (6-9, 4-5) led 48-44 at the break, but pushed the lead to 17 points before the Shoremen (5-11, 2-7) could make a second-half field goal. Freshman Jeff Stewart had three of the six ’Berg baskets during the run, two layups and a tip-in. He was one of five Mules in double figures, finishing with 14 points. Sophomore Jimmy O’Brien scored four of his 16 points during the run.

The Mules shot 59.5 percent from the floor in the first half and 56.7 for the game. They hit 13 threes to break the school record of 12, a mark last achieved against Elms earlier this season.

A pair of juniors led the Mules in the first half. Ryan Bonda scored 11 first-half points on 3 three-pointers and finished with a team-high 19 points. Chase Licata scored 14 points in the first. He totaled 17 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for his first career double-double. He was 6-for-9 from the field and added six assists and three steals.

Muhlenberg trailed by as many as seven points in the first half and was down four, 36-32, at the five-minute mark, but a Bonda three started a 9-0 run that gave the Mules a five-point lead. The margin shrank to two points once before the half, but Muhlenberg led the rest of the way.

Freshman Tom Scott knocked down three of his four three-point shots, and had 15 points, six rebounds and five assists. Stewart was 7-for-10 from the field with nine boards.
