Five-Star Matchups

McDaniel at Dickinson (Men's Basketball)
It is a crucial game at the Kline Center tonight as the Green Terror (8-6 CC, 13-8) visits Dickinson (7-7, 11-9). McDaniel won the first meeting of the year by a 62-41 count in Westminster and looks for its first season sweep of the Red Devils since 1995. A Terror victory, combined with a loss by Franklin & Marshall, puts the Green and Gold in the driver's seat for its first playoff spot since '95 since McDaniel will have swept season sets from F&M and Dickinson. The Red Devils have won 12 straight from the Green Terror in Carlisle since an 81-73 loss in 1995. Keep an eye on two talented backcourt players in Dickinson's Kizmahr Grell and McDaniel's T.J. Odunlami.

Gettysburg at Johns Hopkins (Men's Basketball)
The Bullets (12-2, 17-3) and the Blue Jays (9-5, 13-8) meet in a rematch of their 2007 Centennial semifinal in what could be a preview of an '08 final four contest. Gettysburg is second in the CC, two games behind front-running Ursinus, while Hopkins is in third place, one game in front of McDaniel and Muhlenberg. The Orange and Blue won the year's first meeting back in December by an 82-77 count. Two of the Conference's top sharp-shooters will be on display in Gettysburg's Dan Capkin and JHU's Doug Polster - both of whom were named to the Academic All-District II team for their play on the court and in the classroom.
