Muhlenberg Women’s head coach Ron Rohn, stresses that the team cannot look ahead. It’s important to take one game at a time. However, last night was a little different. Rohn and his coaching staff made the women aware of a few achievements within reach entering the matchup against Franklin & Marshall, and the Mules accomplished them with ease. With last nights victory the team tied the school records for longest win streak and fastest start, both which were set at 13 in the 2001-2002 season. The dominating victory improved the Mules to 13-0 as well as 8-0 in the Centennial Conference, leaving them as the only undefeated team in Conference play.
It was a great team win for the Mules and having opened a 21-6 lead after the first quarter Rohn was able to put in his “second platoon” for much of the contest. He made it clear he is a very hard coach to please, but he couldn’t say one negative comment on the performance of his squad, especially in the first half. The Mules led by 30 after the first twenty minutes of play. His second string has become very valuable as well, as it gives the starting five an opportunity to rest as they get back into basketball shape after the holidays. But let me tell you something, having watched the Mules last night they don’t look like they need to get in any better shape. The team is so fun to watch. They don’t do anything fancy. They just play so well together, have fun and play great team basketball.
The Mules look to break the record on Thursday when they welcome in Gettysburg. From what I’ve seen, they should have no issues doing so!
Good luck girls!
