February 4, 2013
Senior Mariah Mouzon (Elmira, NY/Elmira Free Academy) averaged 13.3 points and eight rebounds per game to lead Keuka College’s women’s basketball team to an undefeated 3-0 week, while freshman Connor Hinman (Lethbridge, Alberta/Catholic Central) and the men’s volleyball team picked up the first win in program history with a three-set sweep of Sarah Lawrence College.
On Monday, Mouzon and Hinman were selected Keuka College’s Athletes of the Week.
Mouzon, a forward, scored 10 points with 7 rebounds and 2 blocks in Wednesday night’s 65-48 road win over Morrisville. With Keuka trailing 31-26 at halftime, the Storm used a 20-0 run to complete the sweep of the Mustangs.
Facing Wilson on Saturday, Mouzon scored 10 points with eight rebounds during a 71-46 home win over the Phoenix.
She finished off the week by scoring a season-most 20 points with nine rebounds during a 76-64 win over Penn State-Abington, the Storm’s 10th straight victory.
Mouzon shot 57.1 percent from the floor (8 of 14) in reaching double-figures in scoring for the 13th time in 18 games as the Green and Gold improved to 10-0 at home in 2012-13.
With her 20-point performance, Mouzon sits 44 points shy of becoming the 10th student-athlete in school history with 1,000 career points.
On the season, she is averaging 11.6 ppg. and 8.4 rpg., leading the Storm in rebounding while ranking third in scoring average. Her 52 percent field-goal percentage leads the team.
Hinman, an outside hitter, compiled 31 kills with 15 digs and 4 blocks during the Storm’s first weekend of competition at York College in New York City. He sported a .222 hitting percentage and added four assists and two service aces as the Storm finished 1-2 on the opening weekend, dropping a pair of matches with host York in-between the three-set sweep of Sarah Lawrence.
On Friday night, Keuka was swept by York by scores of 25-18, 29-27 and 28-26. Hinman recorded a match-high 12 kills with 7 digs and 3 blocks in the Green and Gold’s first-ever match.
On Saturday, Hinman had 10 kills and six digs, but Keuka fell to York 25-8, 25-20 and 25-19 before sweeping Sarah Lawrence 25-12, 25-12 and 25-12.
Hinman had nine kills with only one error in 14 attempts (.571 hitting percentage) in the win over Sarah Lawrence.
Hinman had three kills as part of an 11-1 run to open the match en route to the first set win in program history.
The Storm were in control of the second set and won 15 of the final 21 points to take a 2-0 lead, and sophomore Ryan Kelly (Clifton Springs, NY/Midlakes) won five straight service points and freshman Josh Makin (Lethbridge, Alberta/Catholic Central) won four straight service points as the Storm completed their historic first win. Keuka had 15 service aces in the win.
Keuka returns home for the program’s home opener at 2 p.m. Saturday, when Penn State-Altoona comes to campus for a non-conference clash.
