Saturday's Women's Hoops Recap
Latisha Pledger, Washington College
Washington College 69, Wesley
Sophomore forward Latisha Pledger (Chesapeake, VA/Indian River) had game-highs of 19 points, on 7-for-10 shooting, and 13 rebounds for her ninth career double-double, and second of the year, as host Washington College topped visiting Wesley, 69-58, on Saturday evening in non-conference women's basketball action at the Cain Athletic Center. The Shorewomen improve to 4-4 overall, while the Wolverines slip to 1-6.
Muhlenberg 80, Albright 47
Because its bus arrived in Reading well in advance of the tipoff time against Albright, the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team killed time by visiting the Fairgrounds Square Mall. Most of the players chose to hang out in the store Adorable Pets, where they played with puppies and cuddled with kittens. Then they went and tamed some Lions. The 12th-ranked Mules (9-0) led from start to finish and defeated Albright, 80-47, in their last game of 2011 and their final non-conference game of the season. Muhlenberg returns to action on January 4, 2012, with a home game against Centennial Conference foe McDaniel.
McDaniel 61, Susquehanna 52
McDaniel scored 11 of the final 13 first-half points to turn a one-point deficit into an eight-point advantage at the break en route to a 61-52 non-conference women's basketball victory over Susquehanna on Saturday. Freshman Steph Perez (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin East) made it a perfect 10-for-10 in 2011 reaching double figures and hit 20 points for the second time in three games, leading the Green Terror (7-3) with a game-high 20 points. She also chipped in five assists and four rebounds. Rachael Rybak (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin) added 13 points and a career-best eight rebounds to go with a career high-tying four steals.
