Notebook

Dickinson shot 55.8% from the field on its way to a 79-61 win vs. Muhlenberg. Seniors Ted Hinnenkamp (York, Pa.) and Brandon Angradi (Milford, Pa.) led the Devils with 17 and 15 points, respectively. Hinnenkamp became the 26th player in program history to score 1,000 career points. Freshman Jule Brown (Ardmore, Pa.) added 13, while soph Jon Stenger (Midlothian, Va.) also hit double figures with 11.

Franklin & Marshall clinched a first-round bye for the Centennial tournament with a 72-66 win at Swarthmore. Sophomore Brandon Federici (Morganville, N.J.) scored 23 of his game-high 27 points in the second half. Junior Hunter Eggers (Greenwich, Conn.) added 21 and is averaging 21.5 ppg vs. the Garnet this season, opposed to 12.0 overall. Senior Cedric Moune (Douala, Cameroon) had his 11-game double-figure scoring streak snapped with six points.

Gettysburg used stifling defensive performance to win at Haverford, 67-32. The 32 points allowed is the fewest ever in a Centennial game. It is the lowest scoring output by a Bullet opponent since a 44-22 win over Lehigh on Jan. 4, 1964. Gettysburg held the Fords to just 23.1 percent success from the floor. Junior Tanner Kirkpatrick (Carlisle, Pa.) led the offense with 16 points in just 12 minutes. Gettysburg (15-6) has won 15 games in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2009-10. Sophomore Alex Kaslander (Verona, N.J.) saw his 13-game streak with at least one three-pointer end vs. the Fords.

Three days after shooting a season-best 51.9 percent from the field in a victory, Haverford connected on just 23.1 percent in a loss to Gettysburg. It is the fourth time this season that the Fords have shot under 30 percent. Senior Anthony Reyes (Breezy Point, N.Y.) came off the bench and scored 11 of the Fords' 32 points. Sophomore Joe Scibelli (Charlotte, N.C.) had his six-game streak of scoring in double figures snapped (3).

Johns Hopkins dropped to .500 with a loss at Muhlenberg. Senior Sam Gordon (New York, N.Y.) tallied his fourth double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Ryan Curran (Flanders, N.J.) scored a game-high 17 points. Senior Matt Billups (Watchung, N.J.) added 10 points and three blocks to move into the Centennial career top 25 in swats (109).

McDaniel rallied from double digits in the second half for the second time in the last four games, defeating Ursinus, 65-64. Trailing by 12 with 4:33 remaining, the Terror reeled off 13 unanswered points, capped by senior Wes Brooks (North Wales, Pa.) put-back with 14.1 left. He finished with a game-high 21 points and extended his three-point streak to 24 straight contests. Senior Tim Stewart (Smyrna, Del.) added 19 points and is averaging 22.5 ppg. over his last four games.

Muhlenberg’s playoff hopes suffered a major blow with a 79-61 loss at Dickinson. Sophomore Nick Rindock (Allentown, Pa.) scored a team-high 15 points, while junior Brandon LaRose (Williamsburg, Va.) added 11. Head coach Scott McClary is just three wins shy of 100 for his Muhlenberg career. 

Swarthmore battled #16 Franklin & Marshall to the end before falling 72-66 at Tarble Pavilion. The Garnet held a 64-62 lead with 2:09 to play but was outscored 10-2 down the stretch. Sophomore Zack Yonda (Berwyn, Pa.) led the team with 17 points, while freshman Henry Cousineau (Minneapolis, Minn.) added 15 for the second straight game. Soph Robbie Walsh (Summit, N.J.) notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Swarthmore's 16 victories is the most by a Garnet five since 1997. The program record for wins in a season is 17 (1991).

Ursinus was outscored 13-0 over the final 4:33 to fall at McDaniel, 65-64. Senior Malik Draper (Scranton, Pa.) scored a season-high 20 points including three three-pointers. Freshman Eric Williams (Plainfield, N.J.), who returned after missing four games, drained two treys to extend his streak to nine consecutive contests. The Bears need three wins in their final four games to register their first winning season since 2010. Ursinus is 5-12 vs. ranked Franklin & Marshall teams since 2000 with its last win coming in 2005 when the Diplomats were ranked #11.

Washington College was outscored 13-6 over the final 3:58 and fell at home to Dickinson, 69-62. Senior Dave Knox (Warrington, Pa.) scored 11 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for his 13th career double-double. Junior James Drury (Jenkintown, Pa.) led the Shoremen with 19 points.
