WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - In a return to one of the longest running rivalries in the Lycoming College women's basketball team's history, Lycoming will face off with King's College in a non-conference matchup at Lamade Gym on Monday, Jan. 8.

The Warriors (10-3 overall)are looking for their fourth win in a row after winning their last two in come-from-behind fashion over MAC Commonwealth rivals. The team downed Stevenson, 60-57, in overtime on Jan. 6, as senior Haley Sipple and sophomore Akilah McFadden led the way with 15 points each.

The Monarchs (7-5 overall) are looking for a third straight win after opening the season with MAC Freedom wins over Delaware Valley and Eastern. Sophomore Rebecca Prociak led the team against Eastern, posting 17 points and 10 rebounds in the 48-41 win.

Warrior Notes
• With a win, head coach Christen Ditzler can become the third Lycoming coach in the athletic department's history to win 300 games in one sport, joining wrestling coaches Roger Crebs (1993-pres., 388) and Budd Whitehill (1956-1993,  374).

• Lycoming leads the MAC Commonwealth with an average of 74.4 points per game, a .328 defensive field goal percentage, a .386 3-point field goal percentage, 6.2 3-point field goals per game, 45.8 rebounds per game and 16.5 offensive rebounds per game.

• Senior Shelby Mueller is four free throws made shy of the school's career record of 278 set by Annette Weller (1991-96).

• Seniors Shelby Mueller (10 points, 12 rebounds) and Haley Sipple (15 points, 10 rebounds) each had double-doubles against Stevenson, the first time the Warriors accomplished that since junior Jenn Grove and sophomore Kayla Kline each had double-doubles against Penn State Hazleton in the season opener in 2016-17.
