Johns Hopkins scored five points in the last 25 seconds to pull out a 63-61 win against Muhlenberg.

The Mules (8-10, 5-6), who dropped their third road game of the week, held a 61-58 lead before the Blue Jays (11-6, 8-3) hit a three-pointer to tie the score. The shooter was fouled and missed the free throw, but Hopkins got the offensive rebound to set up the game-winning shot, which came on a driving layup with 6.8 seconds left.

Muhlenberg missed a potential game-tying shot with two seconds left and could not get another shot off after Hopkins missed a free throw.

The Mules’ two losses to the Blue Jays this year were by a total of three points. Unlike the first game, in which Muhlenberg nearly came all the way back from a 19-point deficit, this was a seesaw game the whole way, with 16 lead changes and six ties.

Sophomore Jeff Stewart led the Mules with 17 points and 12 rebounds. It was his 11th double-double of the season.

After falling by 27 points in the first meeting with Johns Hopkins, the Mules played a more traditional style of basketball the second time around and kept the game closer, but still suffered their sixth consecutive loss, 61-53.

Muhlenberg (8-9, 4-6) recovered nicely after the Blue Jays (14-4, 9-2) scored the first eight points of the game, taking an 18-16 lead with under seven minutes to play in the first half. The Mules had their final lead, 29-28, early in the second half, but Hopkins made three three-pointers in a 16-5 run that turned the tide.

Junior Lacie Smith and sophomore Emily Wright both established career highs in rebounds, with 15 and seven, respectively. Muhlenberg, outrebounded 63-40 by Hopkins two weeks ago, had a 23-15 advantage on the boards in the second half. Wright also scored a team-high 12 points.

Wrestlers Sink Maritime

Sophomore Michael Tenenhaus’ first career pin was one of three the Muhlenberg wrestling team recorded in a 39-9 victory at Maritime. It was the third win for the Mules (5-8) in their last five matches.

Tenenhaus moved up to 133 pounds from his normal 125 and pinned his opponent in the second period. Muhlenberg’s other two pins came at the upperweights, as sophomore 184 John Hesse notched his 19 seconds into the third period and freshman heavyweight Joe Tartar needed only 85 seconds for his.

Tartar leads the Mules with nine pins, eight of which have come in the first period. Hesse is third on the team with his five falls.

Senior Jeremy Hart, freshman Brian Saval and junior Chris Gibson each won by decision from 149 to 165, conceding only two escapes among the three of them.
