Spencer Liddic For the second time this season and the fifth time in his career, senior Spencer Liddic of the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team was named player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Liddic scored 30 points in the Mules’ lone game of the week, an 83-78 home win against Drew. He was 11-of-17 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line. Liddic also pulled down nine rebounds and recorded one assist, which led to the Play of the Week.

The 30-point game was the third for Liddic, who scored 35 against Washington College and 32 against Gallaudet last year. Only three players in program history have more 30-point efforts: Ned Rahn (10 between 1967 and 1970), Bob McClure (5, 1968-71) and Mark Lesko (5, 1999-2002).

Liddic moved past Lesko and into eighth place on Muhlenberg’s all-time scoring list with 1,413 career points. He also moved to within 100 of the CC’s all-time rebounding record.

Liddic leads the CC in rebounding (13.6 per game) and also is fourth in points per game (19.2) and eighth in field-goal percentage (.531).

The Mules are off to an 8-2 start, their best record after 10 games in 43 years.
