The Sweet 16
The Centennial Conference has a representative in both the men's and women's Sweet 16 tonight, as the Franklin & Marshall men and Gettysburg women continue play in the NCAA Division III tournaments. It is the fourth time in the Conference's 17-year history that a men's and women's team has reached the Sweet 16 in the same season (1995, 2004, 2009).
The Diplomats (25-4) travel to St. Mary's City, Md., to take on St. Mary's (26-3). F&M defeated the Seahawks, 72-61, back on Nov. 30, as James McNally had a double-double with 30 points and 13 rebounds. This is the Diplomats' 12th trip to the Sweet 16 and second consecutive appearance in the third round. Watch the game LIVE on your computer and get live stats here.
