Notebook

Washington College senior F Tony Hawkins (Mt. Ephraim, N.J.) notched his first career double-double with career-bests of 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead all players in both categories in the Shoremen's 76-47 win at Haverford on December 3, which snapped a 10-game losing streak on the Main Line to the Fords. The 29-point win was the largest margin of victory for Washington College since an 81-52 triumph in the 1996-97 season.

Dickinson junior F Steve Collins (Rydal, Pa.) averaged 17.0 points on 63 percent shooting from the floor in a pair of Red Devil victories. He poured in 21 points in the 64-52 win at McDaniel.

The Green Terror rebounded with a 97-point explosion in its win against Ursinus. It was the most points registered by a McDaniel squad since a 98-94 victory over Johns Hopkins on Jan. 23, 1996. Sophomore F Tim Stewart (Smyrna, Del.) led the way with 22 points as the Terror shot 63.5 percent from the field (33-of-52).

Gettysburg senior F Connor Poston (Ambler, Pa.) grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds vs. Johns Hopkins - the most by a Bullet since Julius Redd '07 grabbed 19 boards in a 58-42 loss versus York (Pa.) College on Nov. 21, 2006.

Muhlenberg is off to a 6-1 start for just the second time in 25 years following a 91-75 triumph over Johns Hopkins. Junior G Malique Killing (Philadelphia, Pa.) registered his fifth career 30-point game with a game-high 32 markers.

Haverford and Johns Hopkins are idle until the New Year due to exams.
