|Mens Home Finale Postponed - The last home game of the season for the Muhlenberg mens basketball team was pushed back a day due to the snow. It is now scheduled for Thursday, February 15, at 7:30.|
Theyve come a long way since freshman year.
Muhlenberg basketball seniors Meghan Courtney and Chris Huber, who combined for 78 points their first year, have scored a few more than that this season and were honored for their accomplishments. They each earned a spot on the Lehigh Valley Small College Basketball Team of the Year, which was announced yesterday at a luncheon at Starters Pub in Bethlehem.
As great a basketball player as she is, said womens basketball head coach Ron Rohn, shes a 10-times-better person and student.
Earlier this season, Courtney scored the 1,000th point of her career and earned Centennial Conference co-player of the week honors. She was also named to the CC weekly honor roll three times.

Huber, meanwhile, leads the mens team with 251 points (11.4 ppg). He is
This is a great honor because I have never been named to anything before, Huber said. I would like to thank all my teammates. I attribute this to them because I wouldnt be here without them.
In the first game of Muhlenbergs current three-game winning streak, Huber hit two key three-pointers and scored 16 points to help his team come from behind.
As a sophomore Chris was still playing JV and asked me what it would take to get more varsity playing time, said mens basketball coach Dave Madeira. I told him to get stronger and play more aggressively, and he really took that to heart. He has made himself into a fine shooting guard in the Centennial Conference thanks to his hard work. He is well-deserving of this honor.
In addition to their individual accomplishments, the two seniors are trying to lead their teams to high achievement. Courtneys womens team won the Centennial Conference championship last year and has clinched a playoff berth this season, while Huber and his teammates have two games left in the regular season with a shot at making a return trip to the playoffs.
