SCOTT REPEATS AS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
BASKETBALL PLAYOFF SCHEDULES SET

For the second year in a row and the 11th time in the 14 years of the league’s existence, both Muhlenberg basketball teams qualified for the Centennial Conference playoffs.

The Muhlenberg men (10-14, 9-9), seeded fifth, will open up at fourth-seeded Gettysburg (12-12, 10-8) on Wednesday, February 21, at 7:30. The teams split their two regular-season meetings, with the road team winning in overtime both times.

The complete men’s schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, February 21
Muhlenberg at Gettysburg, 7:30
Saturday, February 24 (at Johns Hopkins)
Johns Hopkins vs. Muhlenberg or Gettysburg, 2:00
Ursinus vs. Haverford, 4:00
Sunday, February 25 (at Johns Hopkins)
championship game, 3:00

Despite dropping their final three regular-season games to fall into a four-way tie for third place, the Mule women (19-6, 12-6) earned the third seed and a first-round bye. They will travel to regular-season champion McDaniel to take on second-seeded Dickinson (21-4, 15-3) on Saturday at 3:00. Dickinson won both regular-season meetings in low-scoring games.

The complete women’s schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, February 21
Gettysburg at Ursinus, 7:00
Saturday, February 24 (at McDaniel)
McDaniel vs. Gettysburg or Ursinus, 1:00
Muhlenberg vs. Dickinson, 3:00
Sunday, February 25 (at McDaniel)
championship game, 2:00

The Muhlenberg women are looking to repeat as CC champions for the second time in their history, while the men are seeking their first title since 1998. The CC champion in both men’s and women’s basketball receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championships.

Check back tomorrow for a full preview of the men’s game.

Tom Scott

For the second week in a row, senior Tom Scott of the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team was named player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Scott averaged 27.0 points and 6.0 rebounds, shooting 62.1 percent (18-29) from the field and 60.0 percent (6-10) from three-point range, to lead the Mules to two wins and a berth in the Centennial Conference playoffs. Scott scored 29 points – 18 in the last nine minutes of regulation and overtime – in a 91-84 win against Dickinson, then poured in 25 in a 76-68 victory at Ursinus.

Scott is averaging 21.0 points and 7.6 rebounds in Muhlenberg’s current five-game winning streak, which comes on the heels of an eight-game losing streak. For the season, he leads the Mules in scoring with an average of 11.2 points per game.

Scott is the first Muhlenberg men’s basketball player to earn the CC honor in back-to-back weeks.
