Women’s Basketball to Put Points to Good Use
Aril Bryant

One of three Muhlenberg point guards with at least 50 assists this season, junior Aril Bryant has been an important contributor to the Mules’ NCAA-leading scoring average. She has 51 assists with only 31 turnovers.

All season long, the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team has been using its high-scoring offense to win games. On Saturday, the Mules will try to apply all those points to another, more important, cause.

The team, in conjunction with the Xi Iota Chapter of Delta Zeta Sorority, will conduct a “Hoops for Hearing” fundraiser at its game against Gettysburg. Sponsors will be asked to pledge an amount of money for each point the Mules score in the game. All money raised will be donated to the Lehigh Valley Intermediate Unit to assist those with speech and hearing impairments.

The Intermediate Unit should make out very well. Muhlenberg is one of only two women’s teams in the NCAA averaging more than 90 points per game and has topped the 100-point mark on five occasions. The Mules barely missed that mark the last time they played Gettysburg, scoring a 99-82 victory.

Muhlenberg currently averages 90.1 points per game, second among women’s teams to DePaul’s 90.9 average. The second-ranked scoring team in Division III is Buena Vista, at 81.9 ppg.

The “Hoops for Hearing” fundraiser is part of Muhlenberg’s annual Winterfest, which will also feature prizes and entertainment throughout the women’s-men’s doubleheader.
