Let's Get It Started

The 2008 Centennial men's and women's basketball tournaments begin tonight in the southwestern corners of the Conference - Gettysburg and Westminster. To the winners - trips to Lancaster and Collegeville. For the losers - the season comes to a close.

McDaniel at Gettysburg (Women's Basketball)
The Green Terror and the Bullets meet in the postseason version of their Route 97 rivalry at 7 p.m. at Bream Gym. The teams have met three times before in the CC tournament first round with McDaniel winning them all (1998, 2003, 2006) in Westminster. The Terror has the best winning percentage in the Centennial playoffs (11-6, .647), while Gettysburg is winless in seven trips to the Conference dance. The Bullets swept McDaniel during the regular season, winning 87-76 on the road and 66-54 last weekend at home, to close the all-time series deficit to 42-31.

Dickinson at McDaniel (Men's Basketball)
Bill Clinton was president the last time either of these two teams appeared in the Centennial playoffs, as the Red Devils are back for the first time since winning it all in 1997, while the Green Terror makes its second-ever trip and first since 1995. McDaniel swept the season set from Dickinson, winning 62-41 at home and 73-71 on the road, closing the all-time series deficit to 63-36. The Red Devils have lost six straight at Gill Center since a 69-47 triumph in 2002. The Green Terror has never hosted a league playoff game in its basketball history and has not won a postseason game since 1961, defeating Johns Hopkins (86-65) in the Mason-Dixon Conference semifinals.

Due to a firewall issue between Westminster and Lancaster, we will not be able to bring you the game LIVE. However, we are recording the game for your viewing later this evening -- tape-delay if you will.

thanks for your understanding
