Brandywine athletics week in review: Nov. 16-22

November 23, 2015

MEDIA, Pa. — Both Brandywine basketball teams continued non-conference play last week as the men’s and women’s teams each split a pair of games.

After falling to 0-2 following a 90-63 road loss at Delaware Valley on Tuesday, the Brandywine men held off Williamson Trade in the team’s home opener, 66-63, for their first victory of the season.

Freshman Amir Johnson, who was named national player of the week by the USCAA earlier in the week, led all scorers with 19 points and added six rebounds. Johnson is averaging a team-best 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per outing through his first three collegiate games.

Junior Marcus Turner added 12 points, including a trio of three-pointers during the final three minutes of the first half, helping Brandywine pull away. The Lions held off a late run from the Mechanics to notch the three-point win.

The Lion women also went 1-1 last week, defeating NCAA Division III Rosemont 84-68 before suffering their first loss of the season, a 77-58 setback at Widener.

Brandywine received a balanced scoring effort during its victory over Rosemont as five players netted double figures and 11 players scored at least two points.

Senior Lauren Munro filled the stat sheet against Widener, producing 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting, nine rebounds and seven assists.

Munro will likely become the seventh player in Brandywine women’s basketball history to reach 1,000 points on Tuesday when the Lions host Trinity (D.C.) in their home opener. Munro, who owns 994 career points, is Brandywine’s second-leading scorer this season at 11.3 points per game.
