WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Swarthmore started the game on a 16-2 run and held on from there to defeat McDaniel 52-46 on Wednesday.

• Nine players on the Green Terror roster have connected on a 3-point attempt this season. Not one player has yet to reach double-digit triples. However, four players have hit between six and nine this season. Katie Klein leads the team with nine in just eight games this season. All nine of those 3-pointers have come in the last three games she has played after not connecting on two attempts from long range in the first five games. Her 3.0 treys per game in conference play is the best in the CC.

• McDaniel has eight games scheduled over the final 20 days of January with the prospect of still needing to find a place to make up the Muhlenberg game in the schedule. The next three weeks feature two three-game conference weeks. Luckily for the Green Terror five of those eight games are at the Gill Center.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Swarthmore, ranked 18th, went on a 21-6 run in the first half to break open a close game and defeat McDaniel 78-37 on Wednesday.

• The Green Terror had its stretch of six straight games decided by six points or fewer snapped at No. 18 Swarthmore last Wednesday. The Garnet defense stifled McDaniel, holding its visitors to just 37 points – the fewest since Gettysburg held the Green Terror to 37 in a 62-37 victory on Jan. 20, 2010. McDaniel had scored no fewer than 64 in any of its first eight games this season and tallied 73 or more in seven games.

• Charles Contee and Jahdel Darego have established career highs in the last two outings for the Green Terror. Contee netted 18 points in a 76-72 win at Elizabethtown on Dec. 30. Darego tallied eight to go with five rebounds at Swarthmore last week. The last two games had been the first significant action of the season for the rookies. Contee has started both games and played a total of 56 minutes after playing just eight minutes total in the first seven games. Darego saw 23 minutes of action the last two times out after not playing since the opening weekend of the season when he saw nine minutes of action.
