Hoops Tonight 12/8

Molly Guntli
It has become very clear very early that this will be a balanced year for Centennial Conference basketball. On the women's side, who would have thought that McDaniel, the preseason favorite to "three-peat," would be 0-2. Granted, the Terror has taken on Dickinson and Johns Hopkins who have a combined 11-2 record. But still ...

Did you realize that Ursinus (4-2, 2-1 CC) is a buzzer-beater by Swarthmore's Debbie Farrelly away from making it a three-way tie for first place in the Conference? The Garnet (4-4, 1-2) has its Centennial losses at the hands of Hopkins (5-1, 3-0) and Muhlenberg (5-1, 2-1) - a combined 10-2. Yes, it will be an interesting winter in Conference gymnasiums for women's basketball.

On the men's side, Ursinus (4-2, 2-1) travels to Swarthmore (0-8, 0-3) tonight in a game that was moved from Saturday due to the start of finals at Swat. The Bears have won 16 straight from the Garnet, but know they cannot look past anyone ... see last Saturday's loss at McDaniel as example A. It will be interesting to see UC's Matt Fabian and Will Furey battle against Swarthmore big men Ian McCormick and Jon Tundel.

Keep up with all the scores right here this evening on our blog.
