Vallely Named Player of the Week
For the third time this season, sophomore Brandi Vallely of the Muhlenberg women's basketball team was named player of the week by the Centennial Conference.
Vallely averaged 14.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 10.5 assists, and 3.5 steals in a 2-0 week for the Mules. She had 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for her NCAA-record fourth triple-double of the season in a 74-54 win against a Stevens team that received votes in the D3hoops.com poll. Vallely added 13 points, 11 assists and 5 steals against Swarthmore and shot .619 from the field in the two games.
The point guard leads the CC and Division III by a wide margin with her average of 10.3 assists per game - more than twice the second-place player in the CC. Just past the halfway point of the season, her total of 144 assists is tied for ninth on the CC's all-time list, 22 short of the record.
Valley also leads the CC and ranks 14th in Division III in steals per game. She is eighth in the league in rebounding, 10th in scoring, fourth in field-goal percentage and third in free-throw percentage.
With a 13-1 record, Muhlenberg is one of 12 teams in Division III with fewer than two losses. After two postponements, the nationally ranked Mule are scheduled to return to action with a home game against Ursinus on Wednesday.
