COURTNEY, HUBER NAMED TO LEHIGH VALLEY TEAM OF THE YEAR

They’ve 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 Starter’s Pub in Bethlehem.

Chris Huber
Huber has scored in double figures 13 times this season, including two games in which he scored more than 20.
Courtney not only leads the women’s team in scoring with 370 points (15.4 ppg), she also leads the team in rebounding (9.5 rpg) and blocks (49). Her blocked shots total is tops in the Centennial Conference, and she ranks third in both scoring and rebounds. Courtney has a chance to graduate from Muhlenberg as the school’s top shot blocker and is on pace to finish as the No. 3 scorer and No. 5 rebounder in school history.

“As great a basketball player as she is,” said women’s basketball head coach Ron Rohn, “she’s 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.

“Senior year everything comes to a point and you start getting a lot of awards,” Courtney said. “But having people who think I deserve the recognition means more than the honors.”

Huber, meanwhile, leads the men’s team with 251 points (11.4 ppg). He is

also the Mules’ leading free-throw shooter with a .927 average and ranks sixth all-time with 116 career three-pointers. He tied a school record with eight threes in a game against Dickinson last year.

“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 wouldn’t be here without them.”

In the first game of Muhlenberg’s 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 men’s 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. Courtney’s women’s 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.
