Mallory George Becomes Centenary University Women's Basketball All-Time Leading Scorer and Rebounder


BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - When senior forward Mallory George (Berkeley Heights/Gov. Livingston 2013) walked off the court following a season ending ECAC Tournament playoff loss to Moravian College, she did so having scored more points and grabbing more rebounds than anyone in Centenary University Women's basketball history.

George finished her stellar collegiate career with 1549 points and 1004 rebounds, making her the first player in school history to register over 1000 points and 1000 rebounds. This season George led the Cyclones to their second best record in school history (20-7) and was named to the All-CSAC team for the fourth consecutive year and the second straight season on the first team. This season George has also been named  to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Metro All-Star Honorable Mention team. 

George's production on the hardwood has been amazingly consistent throughout her time at Centenary, despite playing for four different head coaches in her collegiate career. Having started and participated in all 102 games the Cyclones have played since the start of the 2013/14 season, George could always be counted on for 15 points and close to 10 boards a game. From the minute she first stepped onto the court as a Cyclone on Nov. 15, 2013, against Penn State-Wilkes Barre scoring a team high 19 points and grabbing 18 rebounds, she has been a team leader on and off the court.
