WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - With back-to-back wins in the rearview mirror, the Lycoming College women's basketball team will start the home stretch of its season on Saturday, Feb. 3, when it hosts Arcadia University at 1 p.m. in Lamade Gym.

The Warriors (15-5 overall, 9-3 MAC Commonwealth) are out to reach 10 conference wins for just the fifth time in program history after it posted a 67-49 win over Alvernia on Wednesday. The team was led in that win by 15 points each from senior Shelby Mueller and sophomore Morgan Mader.

The Knights (8-12 overall, 3-8 MAC Commonwealth) are looking to stay in the battle for a spot in the five-team MAC Commonwealth Championship, sitting 2.5 games back with of fifth-place Stevenson with five games remaining.

Warrior Notes
• The Warriors' magic number to clinch the No. 4 slot in the MAC Commonwealth Championship is two. Any combination of Warrior wins and Stevenson losses will lower the number.

• With a win, the Warriors can reach 16 wins in a season for the first time since 1999-00.

• Sophomore Morgan Mader needs to hit two more 3-pointers to become the eighth player in school history to hit 40 in a season.

• Senior Shelby Mueller five more points to become the fifth player in program history to score 300 or more points in three straight seasons.

• Senior Haley Sipple is one of 18 players in program history to post 500 career points (556), 300 rebounds (360) and 100 assists (108).

• Senior Hailey Fricke was the first women's golfer in program history to earn All-MAC honors, picking up first team honors in 2016 and honorable mention accolades in 2017.

• Seniors Erin Briggs and Fricke were both named to the MAC Academic Honor Roll in 2016.
