Men’s Basketball
As it did all last year, the West Division got the better of the East in the first round of inter-division CC play. Only Ursinus’ 69-60 win against Dickinson prevented a West sweep. Gettysburg moved to 6-0 for the first time since 1952 with a 73-57 win at Washington. Johns Hopkins rebounded from a 25-point loss at Elizabethtown to knock off Haverford, 73-58, extending the Fords’ losing streak to 16.

• Men’s Basketball: Moravian 74, Muhlenberg 68. A furious second-half rally fell short as the Mules (3-3) lost to Moravian for the second time this season.

Muhlenberg went on a 16-0 run to cut the deficit to three with 4:30 left and attempted a three-pointer that would have tied the game.
