Tough Day for Basketball Teams

The Muhlenberg basketball teams had a long day in Lancaster, as both were defeated by Franklin & Marshall.

In the opening game of the doubleheader, the women, playing on the road for the fourth time in eight days, lost 75-60 to snap their six-game winning streak. The Diplomats (11-4, 6-2) scored the last 11 points of the first half to take a 33-29 lead at the break, then shot 57.9 percent in the second half to pull away.

Sophomore Alexis Bates led the Mules (11-4, 6-2) with 14 points, and junior Erin McSherry recorded a career-high 12 points, seven rebounds and five blocks.

Muhlenberg led most of the way and was up by four (64-60) with 4:33 to go, but went 0-for-4 from the field, 0-for-2 from the line and committed two turnovers the rest of the way.

Junior Mike Bernardini led the Mules for the third game in a row with 18 points. Sophomore Ryan Foster added 15 points, and junior Darrell Roth had 11 points, three assists and three steals.
