Junior Chris Huber has been named the men’s basketball
Chris Huber
player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Huber (right) drained five threes as he scored a career-high 20 points in a loss at Division I Lehigh, 80-70. He came back three days later and tied the Muhlenberg record by connecting on all five of his three-point attempts in an 84-58 victory over rival Gettysburg. Huber averaged 19.5 points in the two games and shot 76.9 percent (10-for-13) from three-point land.

In addition, Huber was 5-for-5 on free throws last week and leads the team, shooting 83.3 percent from the charity stripe. His 25 threes are best on the Mules and eighth in the conference. Huber ranks third on the team in scoring (11.1 per game), tied for third in rebounding (2.8 per game) and fourth with 13 steals.

After receiving the honor, Huber scored 17 in the 82-70 win over Franklin & Marshall, helping put Muhlenberg in a four-way tie for third place in the CC at 3-3. The Mules travel to another 3-3 team, McDaniel, on Thursday.

Coluccini and Scott Honored for Academics

Senior Stephanie Coluccini and junior Tom Scott were named to the Lehigh Valley Small College Basketball Scholar-Athlete Teams for excellence in the classroom and on the court at a luncheon on Tuesday.

Stephanie Coluccini Coluccini and Scott, who are used to receiving high grades, got a chance to give a grade to their teams.

“A B+/A-,” said Coluccini, a communication major who is averaging 4.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. “A B+ because we need to play our style every game and we sometimes play down to the other team if we are better. But an A- because this year everyone has accepted their roles as a member of the team and it has worked out for us.”

The women’s team has started 10-1, including 5-1 in the Centennial Tom Scott Conference. Meanwhile, after beginning the season 1-3 in the CC, the men have moved back to 3-3 and are 7-5 overall.

“I would say a B,” said Tom Scott, a double major in accounting and business administration, who is averaging 8.4 points and 2.6 assists per game. “We are just over .500, but improving every day and getting ready to make a run.”
