The Mullenberg men’s basketball team played their third match in three days, making a lethargic start and routing the Susquehanna Township 83-65 at the Geigle Classic at the Geigle Complex on Saturday.
Edwin Suarez scored the highest 34 points in his career in the last three quarters. This is because Murren (12-5) won his second victory in five games after losing the previous two nights.
Mullenberg held a half-time lead of 27-26, forced Susquehanna Township (4-9) into eight out of 25 turnovers in the third quarter, outscoring Indian 36-17. I took the lead of 63-43.
Mule’s lags behind in the first quarter by 15-8. Meanwhile, Director Matt Flowers sent a message when he put the starter on the bench. The effort in the last three quarters was so much better that they received it loudly and clearly.
“It was embarrassing to see,” Flowers said of the first quarter. “We didn’t have the energy. We didn’t have the same enthusiasm as Friday night (losing to the Executive Education Academy 67-62).
“Our strength changed in the second quarter. They started playing harder. They started seeing the big picture. We are fighting for the playoffs.”
Tashiro Alexis and Xzavion Robetson each scored 13 points against Mullenberg.
Alfonso Burnett led the Susquehanna Township with 16 points.
