Players like Brandi Vallely are hard to come by. Someone, as a coach, you know you can trust with the ball in her hands at the last second. But also a player who is so unselfish, she does what is best for her team. Ron Rohn and the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team are witnessing the talents of Vallely first hand. The 5-7 senior has been leaving her mark on the court particularly for the past three years and on Saturday she was recognized for one of her many achievements. In the Mules last outing, Vallely put up 8 points, 9 assists, with 8 rebounds. Sounds like a pretty good night, right? Well it was an exceptional night. The 9 assists now makes Vallely the Centennial Conference all-time leader
with 574 for her career. What’s even more impressive? The Mules still have 13 games remaining, not even including the post season. Even more impressive then that, Vallely broke the record in just 71 games – 45 games shorter then the previous record holder Angie Arnold from Johns Hopkins.
It’s really no surprise that the Mules have been so successful over the past few years with Vallely on the court (they’ve won the last three CC Championships.) And the success continues for the 15th
ranked squad in DIII. The Mules are 12-0 this season, and just one win shy of tying the longest winning streak set in 2002.
