Around the Conference

Gettysburg sophomore G Pete Christ (Pittstown, N.J.) scored a career high 22 points as the Bullets knocked off No. 7 Dickinson, 67-61, last Tuesday. It is the Orange and Blue's first win over a top-10 team since topping No. 8 Franklin & Marshall 79-69 on Jan. 12, 2002. Classmate Tanner Kirkpatrick (Carlisle, Pa.), playing in his hometown, added 15 points and seven rebounds.

Haverford senior G Gibby Graves (Chappaqua, N.Y.) posted the first triple-double in school history in the Fords' 80-77 victory against Muhlenberg. Graves registered 12 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists for the first triple-double in the Conference since Ursinus' Remy Cousart on February 21, 2009.

Johns Hopkins could add two new members to its 1,000-point club this week as seniors George Bugarinovic (Overland Park, Kan.) and Jimmy Hammer (Collegeville, Pa.) need 15 and 27 points, respectively.

Franklin & Marshall head coach Glenn Robinson tied legendary Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp for seventh place on the all-time wins list as the Diplomats topped Elizabethtown, 87-65. Robinson now has 876 career coaching victories and is three away from North Carolina's Dean Smith (879) for the No. 6 spot. Senior Morgan Lee (Brooklyn, N.Y.) led the way for F&M with 24 points.
