MONDAY BLUES FOR BASKETBALL TEAMS
Men Lose in Makeup Game

The Washington men’s basketball team went on a late 12-0 run to pull away and defeat Muhlenberg, 85-76, in a makeup of the game snowed out on Saturday.

The Mules (8-8, 5-4) trailed most of the game, but overcame a 12-point deficit to take a 60-59 lead at the 10-minute mark. The teams seesawed back-and-forth, with Muhlenberg taking its final lead at 66-65 on a putback by sophomore Jeff Stewart with 7:33 to play.

The Mules committed three offensive fouls over the next three minutes, as the Shoremen (6-10, 3-6) scored the next dozen points. Washington eventually led by as many as 16 and won by nine.

Sophomore Tom Scott, who scored 35 points in Chestertown last year, enjoyed another fine shooting night in the Cain Athletic Center, scoring a team-high 17 points and making all three of his three-point attempts.

The Moravian women’s basketball team put on a shooting clinic, missing only seven shots the entire second half to come from behind and defeat Muhlenberg, 100-86.

The Greyhounds (14-2), who won their eighth in a row, were 17-of-22 (.773) from the field and 23-of-25 (.920) line in the final 20 minutes, outscoring the Mules (8-7), 58-35.

After trailing by as many as 14 points in the first half, Moravian rallied to tie the game at 69 with 10:43 to play. The score was knotted at 77 with under seven minutes left when the Greyhounds reeled off a 15-2 run to take command. Muhlenberg made only two field goals in the final 9:49.

Moravian made 19 consecutive free throws during one stretch of the second half and was 34-of-37 from the line for the game.

Junior Kristen Piscadlo scored 11 of her team-high 15 points in the first half, making three of four three-point attempts. Muhlenberg made eight three-pointers in the first half, but shot just 20 percent overall and 13.6 percent from behind the arc in the second half in losing its fourth straight.
