A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Women’s Basketball

Johns Hopkins breezed past McDaniel, 82-58, to win its fourth CC title. The Blue Jays will host Hunter in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, with the winner going on to face the winner of the Hood-Messiah game ... McDaniel and Swarthmore received ECAC bids. McDaniel is the third seed and will host Penn State-Behrend, while fourth-seeded Swarthmore hosts Alvernia. Moravian is the top seed ... All nine teams to which Muhlenberg lost received postseason invites, six to the NCAAs and three to the ECACs.

Men’s Basketball

Ursinus won its first CC championship with a thrilling 96-88 overtime win over Franklin & Marshall. The Bears tied the game on a 35-foot three-pointer with three seconds left in regulation. They received a first-round bye in the NCAA Tournament and will travel to the winner of the game between Buffalo State and Scranton for the second round ... F&M is the top seed for the eight-team ECAC tournament and plays Moravian in the first round. Muhlenberg opponents DeSales and Misericordia also got bids.

BASEBALL DEFEATS NATIONAL CHAMPS

Junior Chris O’Connor and senior Kevin Komeshok combined on a seven-hitter as the Muhlenberg baseball team defeated 2002 National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA) national champion Bethel (Ind.), 5-3.

O’Connor scattered six hits over the first seven innings to earn the win, and Komeshok pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth to pick up his eighth career save.

The Mules (2-1) scored in the first when senior Justin Graf walked, stole second and scored on an error. In the second, back-to-back doubles by freshman Matt Tobia and senior Steve Rohn and a single by sophomore Aaron Regensburg made it 3-0.

After the Pilots closed to within a run, Tobia drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth to make the score 4-2. Bethel scored again in the sixth and had the potential tying run thrown out at third by sophomore centerfielder C.J. Kessler. Junior Joel Rush brought in the final run with a seventh-inning sacrifice fly.

• Softball Splits: The Muhlenberg softball team split a pair of games in Florida, defeating Heidelberg, 8-1, after a 5-1 loss to Washington (Mo.).

In the Heidelberg game, junior Danielle DeLucia came out of the bullpen to work out of a bases-loaded jam in the top of the fourth, then singled in a run as part of the Mules’ six-run rally in the bottom of the inning. She pitched the final three innings, allowing two hits and one unearned run, to get the win.

Junior Becki Toth went 5-for-8 in the two games and scored two runs against Heidelberg.
