Greetings from California

Mules at Universal Studios

The Muhlenberg men’s basketball team spent the second full day of its trip to California at Universal Studios. The Mules begin play in Whittier’s Purple & Gold Classic tomorrow with a game against the hosts at 8:00 Pacific Time.


Playing for the first time in 29 days, the 25th-ranked Muhlenberg women’s basketball team picked up right where it left off and defeated ninth-ranked Scranton, 79-66, to improve to 9-0 on the season.

The Mules set a school record with their ninth consecutive win and extended their school-record home winning streak to 14. Scranton (8-2) entered the game with a seven-game streak.

Muhlenberg made 11 of its first 13 shots to open up a 25-11 lead seven minutes into the game. The Mules shot 55 percent from the field in the first half, scoring 49 points against a team that came in allowing an average of 53.6 points per game.

Down 13 at halftime, Scranton cut the deficit to five, at 54-49, with 12:58 to play, but was held to one field goal over the next five-plus minutes as Muhlenberg re-extended its lead to double digits.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Mules, led by senior Lindsay St. Lawrence, who scored 14 of her season-high 19 points in the first half. Junior Randi Baran scored a career-high 15 points and tied a career best with seven assists.

Senior Jenn Risley also scored 15 points, while sophomore Susan Marchiano had 11 points to go along with career highs of 16 rebounds and four blocks. Sophomore Becky Richmond recorded 11 points, seven rebounds and a career-high six assists.

The Mules had never defeated the Lady Royals in seven previous meetings, losing by an average of 24.1 points.
