Two teams wearing purple, the Scranton women and Curry men, made life blue for the Muhlenberg basketball teams, on championship night at the Scotty Wood Tournament.

Both visiting teams grabbed early leads and were never teams, Muhlenberg College’s Scotty Wood event is drawing good crowds, seriously challenged in capturing the tournament titles. Scranton won the women’s title, 84-60, with Curry capturing the men’s crown, 92-71.

In the women’s game, 14th-ranked Scranton went on a 13-0 run in the first five minutes to take command. The Mules showed some life at the start of the second half, scoring the first seven points to cut a 17-point deficit to 10, but the Lady Royals responded with a 12-2 run and breezed the rest of the way.

Sophomore Alexis Bates established a career high in scoring for the second night in a row, netting 16 points, and Lauren Boyle added 15. Both were named to the all-tournament team.

Sophomore Obi Nwizugbo scored a career-high 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting, and classmate Brian Frankoski poured in a career-high 16 points. Nwizugbo and sophomore Ryan Foster earned all-tournament honors.
