The Lebanon Valley College women’s basketball team’s offense runs through Emily Mealey. That can put a lot of pressure on the 6-0 junior post player.
But Mealey has responded with great decision-making, poise and unselfishness.
This week, Mealey continued to be the driving force behind the Flying Dutchmen’s early season success. On Wednesday, Mealey paced Lebanon Valley to a 62-42 triumph over Marywood College.
With 19 points on nine-of-18 shooting from the field, 14 rebounds – including seven offensive boards, a block, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes of action, Mealey turned in an all-around balanced performance for an undermanned LVC outfit. The outcome moved the Flying Dutchmen to 2-3 in the early going.
The Minersville graduate and Pottsville native currently leads Lebanon Valley in scoring at about 16 points per outing, and in rebounding at more than 12 per game.
