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

The CC playoffs begin tonight with a tiebreaker game between Gettysburg and McDaniel, both of which lost to CC East non-playoff teams last week. Gettysburg fell at Ursinus on Thursday to drop a game behind McDaniel, but the Green Terror missed an opportunity to clinch the playoff spot by losing at Washington. The winner of the tiebreaker plays at Muhlenberg on Wednesday, while Swarthmore travels to Johns Hopkins for the other semifinal.

Women’s Basketball to Face McDaniel

For the second consecutive year, the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team will face McDaniel in the semifinals of the Centennial Conference playoffs.

The Green Terror (18-7) tied Gettysburg for second place in the CC West Division and defeated the Bullets, 64-60, in the tiebreaker game.

Last year, McDaniel won a tiebreaker game, then upset the Mules, 53-52, en route to winning its first CC championship. Earlier this season, Muhlenberg took a 63-62 decision from the Green Terror. The last three meetings between the two teams were all one-point games.

Muhlenberg will host McDaniel on Wednesday, February 26, at 7:00.

WOMEN’S TENNIS DROPS CLOSE MATCH IN SPRING OPENER

In a matchup between regionally ranked defending conference champions, the Muhlenberg women’s tennis team dropped a 5-4 decision at The College of New Jersey late Sunday night.

The Mules shared the Centennial Conference championship last spring and were ranked ninth in the Atlantic South Region. The Lions won the New Jersey Athletic Conference title in the fall to earn a ranking of 17th in the Northeast Region.

All three doubles matches were 8-6, and half of the singles matches went to three sets.

Junior Gena Ross won at first singles against a TCNJ player who was the 2001 NJAC player of the year and a fall All-American.

The match was rescheduled after the Feb. 16 Lions Invitational was wiped out by snow.
