Five-Star Matchups

Muhlenberg at Dickinson (Women's Basketball)
The #10 Mules (1-0 CC, 2-1) travel to Carlisle to face the Red Devils (1-0, 3-0) in a game that will put 'Berg's 23-game Centennial win streak to the test. Muhlenberg defeated Dickinson, 67-65, at the Kline Center last winter in one of the Mules' toughest tests on their way to a perfect 18-0 CC season. The overall series is tied at 18 wins apiece, while Muhlenberg holds a 15-11 lead since 1994. The Devils' Alesha Sisco was named the CC Player of the Week after knocking down 11-of-14 shots for 24 points vs. Swarthmore. 'Berg's Sheila Cook poured in 18 points in the win at McDaniel.

Johns Hopkins at Gettysburg (Women's Basketball)
It's an early season showdown between a pair of perennial Centennial playoff contenders as the Blue Jays (1-0, 2-1) visit the Battlefield to take on the undefeated Bullets (0-0, 3-0). It is the 54th meeting between the schools with JHU holding a 25-5 lead, including a season sweep last winter. Two of the Conference's premier players will be on display in Hopkins' Lyndsay Burton and Gettysburg's Caitlin Moser. Burton is averaging a double-double at 16.5 points and 10.5 rebounds, while Moser is third in the CC at 18.0 points per outing.
