Rally Falls Short at Moravian

The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team dug itself a big hole and could not climb all the way out, losing at local rival Moravian, 85-77, in its final non-conference game of the season.

The Mules (12-4) shot just 22.2 percent in the first half and faced a 51-33 deficit at the break. The margin grew to 20 on five occasions in the second half, the latest at 70-50 with 11:21 remaining.

Back-to-back three-pointers by Kristen Piscadlo and Gwen Doyle kicked off a 12-1 run that got Muhlenberg to within nine. The Mules eventually closed to five points back on a Becky Richmond basket with 2:56 on the clock, but made just one field goal the rest of the way while the Greyhounds (11-6) made five free throws to close out the win.

Senior Jill Friedman led Muhlenberg with 18 points and 13 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season. Doyle added 11 points, and Tiffany Kirk and Susan Marchiano scored nine apiece.

The win gave Moravian a 5½-4½ lead in the Matte Award standings for the 2003-04 year and was the 300th in the career of Greyhound Head Coach Mary Beth Spirk.
