Muhl nets 850th win as Eagles soar

The showdown for the conference lead turned into another showcase for the Kirkwood women's basketball team Saturday.

It also produced the 850th victory for Coach Kim Muhl in his Hall of Fame career with the Eagles.

The second-ranked Eagles jumped to a 22-2 lead in the first quarter and pelted 14th-ranked DMACC, 84-45, at Johnson Hall to grab a two-game lead in the ICCAC conference standings.

"It was a good win for us," said Muhl. "They dialed in."

Muhl raised his record to a sizzling 850-150 in exactly 1,000 games at Kirkwood in 29 years. He's already won seven NJCAA Division II national titles and has a shot at No. 8 this season.

Muhl, 62, brushed aside a question about making a run for 1,000 wins before he's through.

"I'm going for 851," he said, laughing.

Kirkwood raised its records to 21-3 overall and 7-0 in the conference with its 11th straight victory. The league's two alphabet schools, DMACC and NIACC, are both 5-2 at the mid-point of the race.

Kirkwood won for the 10th straight time, raising its records to 20-3 overall and 6-0 in the conference. The Eagles host DMACC Saturday at 1  p.m. in a showdown for the conference lead.

Mullinnix sparks No. 2 Kirkwood women

Haley Mullinnix can chew gum and play basketball at the same time.

She did both very well for the Kirkwood Eagles Saturday afternoon on her 19th birthday.

Mullinnix moved up in the rotation and scored a career-best 15 points as the second-ranked Eagles spanked Southwestern, 82-44, in an ICCAC conference game at Johnson Hall.

Tay Wilson, Kirkwood's top point guard, missed Saturday's contest due to a two-game suspension for violating team rules. That meant Niaja Taylor moved into the starting lineup and Mullinnix became the backup point guard for the first time this season.

She delivered.

Mullinnix, a 5-foot-5 freshman from West Branch, made all six of her shots from the field, including three straight 3-pointers in the first half to steer Kirkwood in the right direction after a slow start.

She also collected two assists, one rebound and one steal during 16 minutes on the floor.

Kirkwood won for the eighth straight time, raising its records to 18-3 overall and 4-0 in the conference. The Eagles are tied for first place in the league with DMACC.
