Women's Basketball aCCtion: Thursday, Feb. 7
The top two teams in the Conference - Dickinson and Muhlenberg - registered road victories to remain two games in front of the pack in the Centennial playoff chase. The Red Devils held off a late Gettysburg rally to defeat the Bullets, 51-48. Laura Houseal had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds to go along with three blocks for Dickinson. Muhlenberg committed just six turnovers and four personal fouls on its way to a 63-38 win at Bryn Mawr. Freshman Sheila Cook led the Mules with a career-high 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting from the floor. It was a big night for Franklin & Marshall's Sarah Meisenberg, as she not only scored her 1,000th career point but also notched the game-winning basket as the Diplomats edged Johns Hopkins, 64-63. It was a combination of youth and experience as Ursinus defeated Washington College, 69-56. Freshman Jaclyn Hilf and senior Sarah Hennessey each scored 23 points for the Bears.
