A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Women’s Basketball

Western Maryland was eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, suffering a 71-61 loss at Scranton, which went on to defeat Messiah to make it to the Sweet 16. Scranton is one of two Sweet 16 teams that Muhlenberg defeated this year; the other is Springfield. In the ECAC Tournament, Franklin & Marshall defeated Johns Hopkins, then upset top-seeded Lebanon Valley to reach the championship game. DeSales, which knocked out Swarthmore in the semifinals, won the title with a 79-68 overtime win. The CC had four 20-win teams in 2001-02: Muhlenberg (21-4), Western Maryland (22-7), Swarthmore (20-8) and F&M (20-7).

Men’s Basketball

Gettysburg shot 8-for-43 from three-point range in dropping its NCAA first-round game to Lycoming, 78-59. Franklin & Marshall won the ECAC Tournament by defeating Lebanon Valley (71-59) and King’s (82-65).

The second career home run for junior Justin Graf, with one out in the eighth inning, was a case of too little too late as the Muhlenberg baseball team dropped a 6-2 decision to Lebanon Valley in a night game at Homestead, Fla.

The Mules (3-4) trailed only 2-1 after six innings, but the Dutchmen (2-1)
Ryan White
White pitched six strong innings in his first start in two years.
jumped on the ’Berg bullpen for four runs in the next two frames.

The loss spoiled an excellent outing by senior Ryan White, who was making his third career start. After allowing a walk and a triple to the first two batters and hitting the third, the right-hander settled down to pitch out of the jam and give up only one unearned run in the rest of his six-inning stint. White struck out five.

Muhlenberg scored its first run in the fourth when senior Joshua Carter reached on a fielder’s choice, stole second and third, and scored on a two-out single by senior Benjamin Leisawitz. Carter had three stolen bases in the game, while Leisawitz went 3-for-4.
