Around the Conference

Dickinson senior Gerry Wixted (Moorestown, N.J.) set a Centennial career record for free throws made (512) in the Devils' 72-45 win vs. Swarthmore. He surpassed the old standard of 507 set by Greg Adams '01 of Washington College. Wixted has scored in double figures in 12 straight games and 15 of 16 this season.

Teammate Brandon Angradi (Milford, Pa.) made five threes vs. Franklin & Marshall and three more against Swarthmore. He has made at least three treys in five consecutive games and nine this season.

Muhlenberg senior Malique Killing (Philadelphia, Pa.) became the program's all-time leading scorer in the win over Ursinus. He now has 1,802 points which is sixth on the career Centennial list. Killing is six steals away from becoming the Mules' career leader in that category. Freshman Nick Rindock (Allentown, Pa.) poured in a career-high 24 points in the loss to #24 Johns Hopkins.

Johns Hopkins ran its winning streak to 12 games with wins at Washington College and Muhlenberg. Senior George Bugarinovic (Overland Park, Kan.) has scored in double figures in eight straight games and 14 of 17 this season. Junior Austin Vasiliadis (Great Falls, Va.) posted his first career double-double with 16 points and a career-high 11 assists vs. the Shoremen. He also dished out 11 helpers against Kenyon on Nov. 16. The Blue Jays can equal the program record for consecutive wins (13) set by the 1992-93 squad when they take on McDaniel on Tuesday.

Franklin & Marshall junior Devin Figueroa (Queens, N.Y.) scored a career-high 25 points in the Diplomats' 82-66 win at Haverford. He knocked down 7-of-9 shots from beyond the arc. The 27.0 percent shooting from the floor (17-of-63) at Dickinson was the lowest by a F&M team since Feb. 23, 2013 when the Diplomats show 24.1 percent in the CC title game loss to the Red Devils. Freshman Brandon Federici (Morganville, N.J.) has scored in double figures in 15 of his 17 collegiate games and eight contests in a row.

Gettysburg senior Sean Gordon (Broomall, Pa.) became the seventh player in program history to score 500 career points, collect 300 rebounds and hand out 200 assists. He now has 540, 306 and 235, respectively. Sophomore Pete Christ (Pittstown, N.J.) scored 20 of his game-high 22 points in the final 20 minutes vs. Washington College. The 29 made free throws were the most by a Gettysburg squad since sinking 34 vs. Grove City on Dec. 29, 2012.

Haverford took Swarthmore to overtime for just the fifth time in the 168 meetings between the long-time rivals but fell to the Garnet, 76-75. Senior G James Levine (Natick, Mass.) had a career night with 27 points. The Fords have dropped nine straight since an 85-80 victory over Moravian on Dec. 13. Senior Gibby Graves (Chappaqua, N.Y.) became the fifth Haverford player to reach 500 points, 300 rebounds and 200 assists in a career and now has 589, 308 and 234, respectively.

McDaniel fell to 2-5 on the road with a 58-50 overtime loss at Ursinus, ending a four-game win streak. The Green Terror shot just 24.6 percent from the floor - its first outing below 43% since a 24.5 percent effort at Dickinson on Dec. 2. Junior Tim Stewart (Smyrna, Del.) had his nine-game double-figure scoring streak snapped in the loss.

Swarthmore junior Chris Bourne (Monmouth Junction, N.J.) had a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds as the Garnet held off Haverford, 76-75, in overtime. Freshman Matt Brennan (Ridgefield, Conn.) hit a three with 0:41 left in regulation to force extra time. Classmate Zack Yonda (Conestoga, Pa.) has scored in double figures in 14 consecutive games and has made 23 consecutive free throws. The Garnet fell to 0-21 against ranked opponents with a 72-45 loss at #7 Dickinson.

Ursinus extended its home win streak to five with a 58-50 overtime victory against McDaniel. Sophomore Matt Knowles (Waverly, Pa.) scored with :08 left to force OT and the Bears made 10 free throws in the extra stanza for the win. Freshman Joe LoStracco (Chalfont, Pa.) had a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds, while classmate Remi Janicot (Princeton, N.J.) corralled a career-high 13 boards.

Washington College is shooting 42.1 percent from the field at home and only 35.4 percent on the road, including 22.1 percent from beyond the arc. Sophomore James Drury (Jenkintown, Pa.) averaged 16.5 points against #24 Johns Hopkins and Gettysburg in an 0-2 week
