WRESTLING FINISHES SIXTH AT PETROFES

Basketball Teams Swept at Johns Hopkins

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
The Johns Hopkins women’s basketball team overcame a seven-point halftime deficit to hand Muhlenberg its first loss of the season, 74-63.

The Mules (4-1, 1-1) appeared to be in good position to win their first regular-season game ever in Baltimore when they took a 12-point lead, 27-15, on a bucket by junior Meghan Courtney with 3:19 left in the first half.

Behind 13 points and seven rebounds by Courtney, and a defense that held the Blue Jays (4-1, 2-0) to 6-of-31 shooting, Muhlenberg took a 32-25 advantage into the locker room.

Hopkins used an 11-2 run to take its first lead of the game, at 44-42, at the 11-minute mark. Trailing 54-50, the Mules had a chance to tie the game from the free-throw line, but missed two of three foul shots, including the front end of a one-and-one. The Blue Jays quickly scored seven points in the next minute to extend their lead to 10.

Hopkins put the game away by making 11 straight free throws in the final 90 seconds.

Courtney finished with 16 points, while freshman Lauren Boyle added 10.

The Blue Jays (4-2, 2-0) shot 68 percent in the first half to open up a 14-point lead at the break and maintained at least a 12-point lead the rest of the way.

Stewart will attempt to become the 31st member of the 1,000-point club when the Mules (4-2, 0-2) host Swarthmore on Tuesday.
