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

Football

The CC went 3-0 in postseason games over the weekend. In addition to Muhlenberg’s 56-6 win against Mass.-Dartmouth in the NCAA first round, McDaniel defeated Moravian, 21-7, in the ECAC Southeast championship game, and Johns Hopkins edged Frostburg State, 24-21, to capture the ECAC Southwest title. The CC is the only Division III conference with three nine-win teams.

Women’s Basketball

Muhlenberg wasn’t the only CC team to run into nationally ranked opposition in the championship game of its tipoff tournament. Franklin & Marshall lost by two points to No. 22 Lebanon Valley, and Johns Hopkins suffered a three-point loss to No. 26 New Jersey ... Haverford and McDaniel started out 2-0. The Fords, 2-0 for the first time since 1994-95, defeated Chatham and Lancaster Bible to capture the Haverford/Bryn Mawr Tip-Off Tournament. Defending CC champ McDaniel won a tournament at Vassar ... The Mules’ next opponent, Juniata, fell to Swarthmore, 57-44, on Friday.

Men’s Basketball

Every CC team won at least one game in the opening weekend of the season, with Swarthmore, Gettysburg and Johns Hopkins all going 2-0 to win their own tourneys. Swarthmore won a 117-111 shootout against Redlands before defeating Connecticut College, 64-46. Gettysburg, the defending CC champ, opened up by defeating Arcadia (the next opponent for Muhlenberg), 70-52 ... Franklin & Marshall failed to reach the championship game of its own tournament for the first time since 1984, falling to Methodist. The Diplomats rebounded to rout Widener in the consolation game.
