It's the start of the annual Centennial Conference three-game basketball week ... a chance to get some games in before the second semester kicks into high gear.
McDaniel at Swarthmore (Women's Basketball)
This one could tell us a lot about both teams' chances to make the Conference playoffs. The Green Terror (3-2 CC, 5-5) has taken seven of the last nine meetings against the Garnet (3-2, 6-6), but Swarthmore captured an 86-79 decision last season at Tarble and a 71-69 contest back in December. Can McDaniel put the clamps on Kathryn Stockbower? The soph has 11 double-doubles and leads the Conference in scoring (18.8) and rebounding (16.1)?
Franklin & Marshall at McDaniel (Men's Basketball)
The 21st ranked Diplomats (4-0, 11-0) face one of their toughest challenges to date as they venture into the Gill Center to take on the Green Terror (3-1, 8-3). McDaniel has won three straight in the series, including a pair in Westminster by a combined total of seven points, after ending an 18-game losing streak to F&M. Two of the top sophomores and two of the top freshmen in the CC will be on display tonight as the Dips' James McNally and Georgio Milligan square off against the Terror's Kevin Henry and Louis Sarris-Grau.
