METROSPORTSREPORT.COM- CEDAR RAPIDS, IA-- Kirkwood Coach Kim Muhl has given Kirsten Larson the green light to shoot a 3-pointer any time she wants. That's smart coaching. Larson broke the school record with nine 3-pointers and scored 27 points Wednesday night as the fourth-ranked Eagles spanked DMACC, 76-52, for their 14th straight win in an ICCAC conference game at Johnson Hall.
Larson, a sophomore from Belvidere, Ill., snapped the old school mark of eight triples by Diamon Beckford during the 2010-11 campaign. Larson drilled three triples in the first 65 seconds and hit her fourth with the game barely three minutes old as the Eagles (18-4, 6-0) jumped to a quick 19-4 lead.
METROSPORTSREPORT.COM- IOWA FALLS, IA-- Kirkwood's Kim Muhl collected his 750th victory as the head coach of the Kirkwood women's basketball program Wednesday night with a 74-39 romp past Ellsworth in an ICCAC conference game in Iowa Falls. Muhl has compiled a flashy 750-139 record with six NJCAA Division II national titles in 26 years. His winning percentage is a gaudy 84.4 percent during that time.
True to his nature, Muhl downplayed the milestone. "It makes you feel a little older," he joked during the bus ride home. Muhl cast doubt on whether he'll keep coaching until he hits 1,000 wins. "I doubt it. I don't think I'll be around for 250 more wins," he said. He did not rule it out, however. "'I don't know' is a better answer," he said.
