Five-Star Matchups

Franklin & Marshall at McDaniel (Men's Basketball)
The Green Terror (6-3 CC, 11-5) looks to make history at the Gill Center when they welcome the Diplomats (5-4, 10-6) for a Saturday matinee. McDaniel has never swept a season series from the Franklin & Marshall, but a 75-62 win in Lancaster back on Dec. 8 puts the Green and Gold in position. F&M has won seven of its last eight games and is second in the Conference in scoring offense (73.5). McDaniel can win its 12th game of the season for the first time since the 1990-91 campaign.

Dickinson at Washington (Women's Swimming)
The Red Devils (3-0, 5-1) put their unbeaten CC record on the line in Chestertown against the Shorewomen (2-1, 8-1). The 200-yard freestyle promises to be one of the highlight events as the three fastest times in the CC are held by Washington's Megan Morse (1:57.60) and Rachel Glasser (1:58.26), and Dickinson's Elizabeth Schroll (1:58.26).

Merchant Marine, Muhlenberg, Ursinus at Stevens (Wrestling)
Three teams with undefeated CC dual-match records meet in Hoboken on a Saturday that could decide the Centennial dual-meet title. The Bears (2-0, 9-0), Ducks (2-0, 5-1) and Mariners (2-0, 7-4) also welcome the Mules (1-1, 2-4) to the quad affair. Key matches include 125 between Ursinus' Steve Kingland (13-0) and USMMA's Jordan Alfaro (12-6); 141 between Muhlenberg's Billy Hall (20-3) and the Mariners' James Beshada (16-8); 165 between the Bears' Mike Schwager (15-1, 11 falls) and USMMA's Vincent Renaut (19-2); and 174 between the Ducks' Brandon MacWhinnie (15-3), ranked fourth nationally, and the Mules' Justin Fitch (17-4).
