Five-Star Matchups

It's a big weekend throughout the Centennial Conference with action on the hardwood, the track and the mat ... along with the conference room as the athletic administrators head to Nashville for the annual NCAA Convention.

Muhlenberg at Gettysburg (Men's Basketball)
The Mules (4-1, 6-6) travel to the Battlefield to take on the Bullets (4-1, 9-2) in a game that suddenly has playoff implications. The two teams are meeting for the 134th time since 1902 with 'Berg holding a 70-63 lead. Gettysburg won two of the three contests last winter, including a 60-51 decision in the first round of the CC tournament. The Orange and Blue leads the CC in FG percentage (48.6), while the Cardinal and Gray is second in FG percentage defense (39.4).

Ursinus at McDaniel (Men's Basketball)
The Bears (5-0, 10-2) put the last undefeated Conference record on the line when they visit Westminster to take on the Green Terror (3-1, 8-3), who fell from the CC unbeaten ranks on Wednesday. Ursinus leads the Centennial in scoring offense (75.0), FG percentage defense (39.1) and FT percentage (71.9). UC senior Nick Shattuck tops all CC scorers with a 21.1 ppg. average.

Muhlenberg at Gettysburg (Women's Basketball)
The Mules (4-1, 8-3) and the Bullets (4-1, 7-4) meet at Bream Gym in a game between two of the Conference's top teams in the early going. 'Berg has won seven of the last eight games and has split the last four contests at the Battlefield. Muhlenberg leads the CC in scoring offense (71.5), while Gettysburg leads the Centennial in FG percentage (40.4).
