WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Dickinson used a big run in the second and third quarters to open up a double-digit lead and defeat McDaniel 62-51 last Tuesday.

• Katie Klein has reached double figures in each of the last three games, averaging a team-best 13.7 ppg over that span. She is shooting 15 of 28 (53.6 percent) over the last three games, including knocking down seven 3-pointers in the last two contests. Klein is now third on the team in scoring at 7.3 points per contest – one of four players to average 5.9 points or more per game. Klein and leading scorer Meggie Burgess (8.6 ppg) are both doing it off the bench.

• Josey Klingenberg enters the week as the conference leader in assists per game, dishing out 5.3 helpers per game. She has four or more assists in all seven games this season and handed out no fewer than five in five of those contests, including a career-best eight in the 77-29 win over Bryn Mawr last Saturday.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Dickinson used a 13-4 run to start the second half and staved off a McDaniel rally for a 70-64 win in the conference opener last Tuesday.

• McDaniel enters the week with three players averaging double figures. Mike Wallace leads the team at 19.8 points per game while Carter Truby (11.8 ppg) and Josh Sproul (10.0) are also in double figures on the year. The trio has accounted for nine of the Green Terror's 14 double-digit scoring performances this season. Sproul has reached double digits in each of the last three games while Wallace and Truby have each done it twice in the same span.

• McDaniel is one of two teams in the CC that ranks in the top four in both scoring offense and scoring defense. The offense currently ranks fourth, averaging 72.4 points per game, while the defense is third, allowing an average of 67.4 ppg. The Green Terror was held to a season-low 64 points in the conference opener against Dickinson. Johns Hopkins is the only other team that can boast that stat, ranking second in offense (75.0 ppg) and first in defense (54.5).

WRESTLING

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel went 4-0 at the Green Terror Duals on Sunday.

• The Green Terror notched 16 pins in four matches at the Green Terror Duals. Of those 16 falls, half happened in the first minute of the match and all but four terminated the match before the first period expired. Alex LaVeck led the way with four pins to earn CC Wrestler of the Week honors. Among his falls was a nine-second takedown in the Rowan College South Jersey match. The fall is the second fastest in program history.

SWIMMING

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel fell in its home opener on Nov. 13 to Washington. The men dropped a 79-15 decision while the Shorewomen were victorious, 80-15.

• In the last outing three weeks ago, the Green Terror posted no fewer than 11 personal-best swims in addition to six more first-time collegiate swims in events. The women's breaststroke led the way in those PRs with all three swimmers in the event posting personal bests by at least 1.61 seconds. Signe Kula dropped her collegiate best by 1.61 to 1:19.35. Emma Jones knocked 2.54 seconds off her previous best with a time of 1:19.78. Laura Midkiff, in an exhibition swim, bettered her collegiate best by 2.34 seconds with a time of 1:30.08.

INDOOR TRACK & FIELD

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel captured five medals at the 2020 ECAC championship.

• When McDaniel returns to Franklin & Marshall on Saturday, it will have been 637 days since any Green Terror athlete competed at any indoor track and field event. It will be 650 since the last event that didn't require qualifying marks to compete.

• McDaniel has only eight athletes on the men's roster and 10 athletes on the women's roster with collegiate indoor track and field marks. Those eight men, however, have competed in just 23 different events while the women's experience is spread over 34 events. Sarah Case and Renee Dupree combine for half of those marks, including entering the year with four top-10 all-time marks. Gabby Collins comes into the year with the most top-10 all-time marks on the women's side with three as a rookie in 2019-20. She eighth on the 55 list, fifth on the 60 list, and fourth on the 200 list. Case, Dupre, and Megan O'Neil all have two each. Nick Razze has the most on the men's side, currently ranking first in the 60 hurdles, third in the 55 hurdles, and seventh in the high jump. Zach Stango has two.
