Saturday, January 16
WOMEN'S BASKETBALL Muhlenberg 58, Washington 35. The Mules used a stifling second-half defense to pull away from Washington and open up a three-game lead in the Centennial Conference East Division. Muhlenberg led, 21-20, at halftime, but Washington made only one field goal in the first 7:58 of the second half and then was blanked over the final 5:01. It was the 24th time in the last 49 CC games that the Mules held their opponents under 50 points. Senior JILL ROTH shook off a slow start to record her second double-double of the season with 15 points and 10 rebounds. She is the third different Muhlenberg player in the last four games to post a double-double. Senior AMANDA WATERBURY had 10 points and six rebounds, while senior SARAH CLARKE had eight points and five assists. Freshman NANCY KEGELMAN hit a shot at the buzzer for her first career points.
