It's Starting to Get Interesting


With a couple of notable exceptions, parity has reigned over the 2006-07 Centennial men's basketball season. Johns Hopkins (15-2, 9-1 CC) and Ursinus (10-6, 7-2) have begun pulling away from the pack, while six other teams have a legitimate shot at landing one of the three available playoff spots after the Blue Jays and Bears. Four weeks remain in the regular season and all signs point to the race coming right down to the final day of play on Feb. 17.

Haverford at Ursinus (Men's Basketball)
The Fords (7-9, 6-4 CC) travel to Collegeville to take on the Bears (10-6, 7-2) in a game that could have playoff implications down the road. This is the 131st time that the two teams have met on the hardwood with UC holding an 81-49 series advantage.

McDaniel at Franklin & Marshall (Men's Basketball)
It has not happened since the early 80s ... the Green Terror (8-6, 5-3) are above the Diplomats (6-11, 5-5) in the standings in late January. McDaniel can make a statement ... and break some streaks ... with a win tonight. Franklin & Marshall has won 17 straight from the Green and Gold and has not lost to the Terror at home since 1985 (75-73).
