Five-Star Matchups

Washington at Ursinus (Men's Basketball)
The Bears (7-3 CC, 11-6) welcome the Shoremen (6-4, 8-6) to Helfferich Hall for the 79th meeting between the two rivals since 1972. Washington holds a 41-37 series advantage and won the last meeting a year ago in Chestertown, ending a six-game UC win streak. Ursinus has won the previous 11 meetings in Collegeville since an 80-76 loss in an East Division tie-breaker game in 1999. Watch the matchups of multi-talented guards in the Shoremen's Andrew Chambers (16.9 ppg, 6.1 rpg) and the Bears' Remy Cousart (15.5 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 4.9 apg).

Gettysburg at Dickinson (Women's Basketball)
The Bullets (9-2, 14-2) and Red Devils (8-4, 12-4) meet for the 67th time in a series that dates to 1975. Gettysburg holds a 43-23 series lead but Dickinson has won four of the last five, including three straight at the Kline Center. The game could come down to the frontcourt battle between the Bullets' Caitlin Moser (14.5 ppg) and Courtney Fields (12.1) against the Devils' Alesha Sisco (13.7) and Carole Dempsey (13.4).
