WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Having allowed 49 points in three straight double-figure wins, the Lycoming College women's basketball team will hit the road for Stevenson University on Saturday, Feb. 10, looking to get closer to a top-three seed in the upcoming MAC Commonwealth Championship.

The Warriors (16-5 overall, 10-3 MAC Commonwealth) are coming off a 66-49 win over Arcadia on Feb. 3. Sophomore Akilah McFadden led the Warriors with 19 points, five assists and five steals and senior Shelby Mueller added 16 points, nine rebounds and three blocks.

The Mustangs (13-10 overall, 7-7 MAC Commonwealth) posted a 61-56 win over Hood on Wednesday. Junior Jonyae Curry led the team with 16 points and six rebounds and sophomore Hannah Crist added 10 points.

Game Notes
• The Warriors' magic number to clinch the No. 3 slot in the MAC Commonwealth Championship is two. Any combination of Warrior wins and Lebanon Valley losses will lower the number.

• With a win, the Warriors can tie the program record for conference wins in a season, tying the mark set by the 1994-95 team that went 11-3.

• Sophomore Morgan Mader needs to hit three more 3-pointers to become the fourth player in school history to hit 45 in a season.

• Senior Shelby Mueller is the first player in program history to post 300 points and 200 rebounds in back-to-back seasons.

• Mueller needs one more blocked shot to become the fourth player in school history to post 100 in a career.

• Sophomore Akilah McFadden needs one more steal to become the first player since Jessica Zerbee (2006-08) to post at least 40 in her first two seasons as a Warrior.
