The Mat, The Pool or the Court

It's a big night in the Centennial Conference with important matchups on the mat, in the pool, and on the court.

Ursinus at Muhlenberg (Wrestling)
It's a battle between the last two unbeaten teams in Conference matches as the 30th ranked Bears (11-0, 4-0) travel to Allentown to meet the Mules (4-2-1, 4-0). Ursinus has a 26-match undefeated streak in Centennial matches, dating to a Jan. 30, 2002 loss to Muhlenberg (24-10) at Memorial Hall. 'Berg has a pair of nationally-ranked grapplers in 133 Billy Hall (8th) and 197 Matt Loesch (5th). It could come down to the 285-pound match between the Bears' Matt Williams (23-9) and the Mules' Joe Tartar (18-4).

Dickinson at Gettysburg (Women's Swimming)
The Red Devils (7-1, 4-1 CC) and the Bullets (6-1, 5-0) tangle tonight with a share of first place in Centennial dual-meet competition on the line. Dickinson was knocked from the unbeaten ranks by Franklin & Marshall last Saturday, 111-89, while Gettysburg handed Swarthmore its first CC defeat, 132-73. The races to watch include the backstroke, where the Red Devils' Serena Gibney will take on the Bullets' Emilie Youmans and Demery Close, and the breaststroke between Dickinson's Jordan McCord and Gettysburg's Cali Nelson.

Johns Hopkins at Swarthmore (Men's Basketball)
The 20th ranked Blue Jays (17-2, 11-1) visit Tarble Pavilion to take on the surging Garnet (9-10, 6-6), winners of four of its last five. Hopkins leads the all-time series, 58-35, but is just 4-4 since the inception of the CC at Swarthmore. It will be an interesting matchup between the big men - JHU's Matt Griffin (16.5 ppg, 5.4 rpg) and Danny Nawrocki (12.8, 10.6) against Swat's Ian McCormick (14.3, 9.3) and Steve Wolf (12.9, 6.3).

Mr. Ulrich,
Yes sir, all is well back here in Florida - graduating from UF law school in December and currently working in the Governor's Office of Legal Counsel, married to a great girl, and still getting on the mat a few times a week to help out at a local high school. I've been working with a 189lber that could win a state title this year - pretty exciting.

It's a long trip to Allentown from FL and work and school keep me busy, but I appreciate all the online content as a means of keeping up with the Conference and the Mules. It looks like the Conference is doing well and I thank you for your work at that. Keep it up - having been through a total of eight season between football and wrestling I know how valuable the experience is - it'll pay huge (or as Coach Donnelly would pronounce that word - you-ge) dividends for all those student athletes. It's nice when the stock of your past accomplishments continues to rise.

Go Mules!

Some stats from Swarthmore:

Matt Griffin (JHU) led all scorers with 21 points, going 7-7 from the line including hitting two with 3.0 seconds left to ice the win. T.J. Valerio added 10 points. Griffin and Chris Morley had 7 rebounds each.

Ian McCormick led the Garnet with 20 points; Steve Wolf had 16 points and 14 rebounds. Matt Kurman had 9 points and 4 assists.

Wild ending at Tarble as JHU press holds Swat scoreless in last 3 minutes. After Nawrocki fouled out, Morley came in and played above the rim keying the surge.
Some similiarity to UC's comeback win there recently. Swat is playing well and will be a tough draw if they make the CC playoffs.
Griffin and McCormick really battled each other all night despite foul trouble.
