Unnamed trio leads women’s hoops
After combining for 50 of the Mules’ 64 points, 11 of their 12 assists and even more than half of their 39 rebounds, the members of the backcourt
“Right now??” asked Boyle.
“I’m not very good at those things,” said Chili.
“Oh man, this is hard,” muttered McKeon.
Not nearly as hard as guarding them. The Three – Whatevers – are all averaging in double figures and have deservedly received their share of attention, but rarely have they dominated the stats as much as they did against the Diplomats.
Boyle scored a game-high 19 points, McKeon totaled 17 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists, and Chili chipped in with 14 points and 4 assists.
“They’re awesome,” said junior Maiza Mock. “It would be pretty hard to get along without them.”
Even with them, Muhlenberg (11-2, 8-0) struggled in the first half, shooting just 29 percent and scoring only six points after taking a 15-6 lead at the 9:53 mark. The Mules went into the locker room down a point, 22-21.
But as they have done several times this year, the Mules came alive in the second half, shooting 53 percent and scoring 43 points.
“We usually start slow,” said Mock. “Once we started hitting our shots we did okay. If we stick to the offense, we’ll be fine.”
As usual, The – Something – Trio led the way. Every Muhlenberg field goal in the second half was either scored or assisted by one of the three.
F&M (6-8, 4-4) led 28-27 before the Mules went on an 11-2 run to open up an eight-point lead, and the Diplomats never get closer than six. McKeon had four points, five rebounds, an assist and a steal during the run.
Mock also had a big game, providing a spark off the bench by scoring five points and pulling down a career-high seven rebounds. “That’s what I’m in there for,” she said.
