Rivalry Night

There's nothing quite like the feeling a team gets when it defeats its archrival. More often than not, your school's rival is based upon geography ... just miles apart such as Dickinson and Gettysburg, or Muhlenberg and Ursinus. Sometimes, it's based upon your team's success ... see Franklin & Marshall and Johns Hopkins. Occasionally, state pride is on the line as it is when McDaniel and Washington tangle for private liberal arts bragging rights in Maryland. And other times, it can be a genuine dislike for your opponent (with an unspoken respect) such as Haverford and Swarthmore. It's rivalry night ... enjoy!

Games to Watch
Johns Hopkins at Franklin & Marshall (Men's Basketball)

These two perennial CC powers meet for the 79th time tonight. The 25th ranked Blue Jays (13-2, 7-1 CC) hold a game-and-a-half lead over Ursinus (8-6, 5-2) and a two-game bulge over the Diplomats (6-9, 5-3) and Haverford (6-8, 5-3). But to keep that lead, Hopkins will have to find a way to beat F&M in Lancaster - a feat not accomplished since 1998 (0-11). This game pits two coaches - Glenn Robinson (716) and Bill Nelson (446) - who have combined for 1,162 victories.

Dickinson at Gettysburg (Women's Basketball)
The Red Devils (12-2, 7-1) look to keep their share of the top spot in the Conference when they visit the Bullets (10-5, 7-2). It is the 61st time that these two rivals have met on the hardwood with Gettysburg holding a 41-19 advantage. It is also a matchup between the mentor and the pupil, as Dickinson head coach Dina Henry served as an assistant to Gettysburg head coach Mike Kirkpatrick.
