Five-Star Matchups

McDaniel at Dickinson (Women's Basketball)
The Red Devils (12-2 CC, 14-6 overall) welcome the Green Terror (10-5, 11-10) to the Kline Center for a critical game in the playoff chase. Dickinson has a game lead on Muhlenberg for the top spot in the Conference, while McDaniel is in fourth place - one-half game behind F&M for third place and one-half game ahead of Gettysburg and Ursinus for fifth place. The Green Terror won the year's first meeting by a 61-58 count in Westminster on Dec. 4 to take a 41-23 all-time series lead. Dickinson leads the CC in scoring defense (52.0), while McDaniel is second in scoring offense (68.0) and first in FG percentage (42.6).

Ursinus at Franklin & Marshall (Women's Basketball)
The Bears (9-5, 11-10) come callin' to Mayser Center to take on the Diplomats (10-4, 15-6) in a crucial Conference game. Ursinus won at home on Dec. 8 by a 58-47 count for its fourth win in the last five games with F&M. Franklin & Marshall's Sarah Meisenberg leads the CC in scoring (18.5), while Ursinus' Carolyn Konstanzer is fifth (14.9). The Diplomats are 10-1 at home this season.

Gettysburg at Johns Hopkins (Women's Basketball)
It could be a must-win game for the Blue Jays (8-6, 10-10) as they welcome the Bullets (9-5, 13-8) to Baltimore for a rematch of a 30-point Gettysburg win on Dec. 4. Hopkins is a game behind the Bullets and Ursinus for the fifth and final tournament spot and cannot afford another Centennial loss. Gettysburg is a half-game behind McDaniel for fourth place in the CC and looks for its first win against the Jays at Bream Gym since 2000.
