Five-Star Matchups

Ursinus at Franklin & Marshall (Men's Basketball)
This has become one of the top rivalries in the Conference over the past decade and tonight's clash in Lancaster should only add to the fire. The 10th ranked Diplomats (3-1) hold a 76-32 all-time lead over the Bears (3-1), but only have a slender 13-12 lead since the formation of the Centennial in 1994. In fact, since 2003, Ursinus has the better of the series with 11 wins in 15 games. Franklin & Marshall swept the season set last winter for the first time since 2002. If you like to compare scores (and who doesn't), the teams have one common opponent this season - Lebanon Valley. LVC edged the Diplomats, 67-66, while the Bears routed the Dutchmen, 82-56, five days later. Who to watch tonight? F&M features Georgio Milligan and James McNally who both earned first-team All-Centennial honors in 2009. Ursinus has Remy Cousart, an honorable mention All-CC pick last winter, and Matt Hilton, who leads the CC in scoring. You can watch the game online at or listen to the broadcast from the Ursinus Sports Network.
