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

Although Ursinus handed Western Maryland its first CC loss on Sunday, the Green Terror still has the inside track on hosting this weekend’s CC playoffs. Gettysburg needs to sweep Tuesday’s doubleheader at Western Maryland to claim hosting rights. Muhlenberg, which plays Ursinus on Tuesday, could be the second, third or fourth seed. Last year, the Mules won the tournament as the third seed.

Gettysburg 11-3 21-9
MUHLENBERG 10-4 20-12

Men’s Tennis Postponed: The scheduled men’s tennis match against defending CC champion Washington was rained out.


Senior Mark Lesko, who recently finished his All-America career with the Muhlenberg basketball team, has made the roster of the Pennsylvania Valley Dawgs of the United States Basketball League.

As reported in The Morning Call on Sunday, Lesko succeeded in his tryout after being selected in the seventh round of the USBL draft on April 9.

In the article, Darryl Dawkins, the Valley Dawgs’ head coach, was quoted as saying, “He has a great attitude ... Until somebody comes in here and beats him out, it’s his job.”

The Valley Dawgs are the defending USBL champions. Last year, Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss played for the team.

Lesko didn’t travel to Florida over the weekend for the Valley Dawgs’ first two games of the season, but is expected to make his professional debut at Brooklyn on Friday, April 27. His home debut will be the following Friday, May 3. The Valley Dawgs play at Lehigh’s Stabler Arena.
