McDaniel defeated Ursinus, 73-52, to give head coach Kevin Curley his 100th career coaching win. He is now 100-89, becoming the fourth coach in program history to reach the milestone and the first to achieve the mark with a winning record.

Johns Hopkins seniors George Bugarinovic (Overland Park, Kan.) and Jimmy Hammer (Collegeville, Pa.) both eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in the Blue Jays' 87-77 win vs. Muhlenberg. The 15th and 16th Jays to hit the plateau, they are the first Johns Hopkins players to reach the 1,000-point mark since 2007 and are the fourth set of classmates in school history to reach the mark; they are the first players in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark in the same game. In addition, both reached the mark in their 87th career game with Bugarinovic ending today's game with 1,011 points, while Hammer capped today's effort with an even 1,000.
Gettysburg junior Kevin Gladstone (Havertown, Pa.) tallied a career best 17 points as the Bullets held off Washington College, 59-58. The Bullets won in Chestertown despite the absence of head coach George Petrie who remained home with an illness. Sophomore Pete Christ (Pittstown, N.J.) posted his first career double-double with 15 points and 10 caroms.
Franklin & Marshall freshman Brandon Federici (Morganville, N.J.) extended his streak of double-figure scoring performances to seven with 17-point outings vs. Ursinus and Haverford. The only "blemish" on his season was a nine-point effort in the season-opening win vs. Washington & Jefferson. Junior Devin Figueroa (Queens, N.Y.) was a perfect 8-for-8 shooting vs. the Fords, knocking down all five field goal (3-3 from long range) and all three free throw attempts.
Dickinson 6-10 senior Steve Collins (Rydal, Pa.) has a deft outside touch, ranking fourth in the Centennial in three-point FG percentage (50.0), although that brings down his third-best field goal percentage of 60.8 percent.
