WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Washington (Md.) hit a putback late in the first overtime then outlasted McDaniel in the second OT for a 71-66 victory on Wednesday.

• Josey Klingenberg enters the week atop the conference in assists (4.7 apg) and steals (3.1 spg). In 15 games this season, the junior has had just one game with fewer than three assists and has dished out five or more helps eight times. Likewise, she has had multiple steals in all but one game and swiped three or more in a game 10 times. Klingenberg also broke out in the scoring column in McDaniel's last outing at Washington, netting a career-best 15 points that included three 3-pointers.

• McDaniel will play five games in a nine-day stretch between Tuesday and next Wednesday. Fortunately for the Green Terror, four of those five games at a home with the only road trip coming on Saturday with a game at Haverford.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel got points from 16 different players in a 73-43 win over Wilson on Monday.

• The Green Terror has won four straight games led by a resurgence of both its offense and defense. McDaniel is averaging 75.0 points over the last four games while allowing an average of just 53.5. The Green Terror has scored no fewer than 72 in any of those four games and has twice held an opponent to 45 points or fewer. McDaniel is also doing work on the glass during the current winning streak, holding a 37.0-21.5 average edge on the boards.

• The Green Terror has gotten balanced scoring in two of its last three games – both 30-point victories. Last Wednesday at Washington, 12 different players scored with seven of those scoring six or more points. The balance was even more pronounced on Monday against Wilson. Mike Wallace was the only player to reach double figures, scoring 10 points. In total, 16 different players scored no fewer than two points. Charles Contee and Quinn Kimmick netted nine points each while Jahdel Darego tallied seven.

INDOOR TRACK & FIELD

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel posted 14 all-time top-10 marks in the season opener at Franklin & Marshall on Dec. 4.

• The Green Terror has not competed since the season opener on Dec. 4. In that trip to Franklin & Marshall, Sarah Case and Matthew Becker led the throwers with program-record performances. Case set a program record in the shot put with a throw of 12.03 meters while Becker reset the weight throw record with a hurl of 13.48 meters. Chett Brunner was also part of a banner day for the throws group, finishing second in the shot put with the No. 4 mark in program history and a toss of 14.58 meters. John Geneti debuted in the No. 2 spot on the pole vault list at 3.96 meters.

• Doug Renner returns to the helm of the track and field programs after Ozzie Brown stepped down to join the staff at Division I Bucknell. Renner led the program for 28 seasons before Brown's hire in 2019. He has remained as the head cross country coach and on the track and field staff as the distance coach.

WOMEN'S SWIMMING

LAST TIME OUT: Elizabethtown won seven of the 11 events to help top McDaniel 61-34 on Saturday.

• The Green Terror rounds out the dual schedule this weekend before beginning its preparation for the conference championship on Feb. 17-20 at Franklin & Marshall. The McDaniel women turned in no fewer than six season-best times last weekend at home. Hannah Cehelsky posted her third two-win day of the season on Saturday against Elizabethtown, touching first in the 500 and 1000 free. Abby Cook added her first collegiate race win, taking first in the 50 free. Amanda Thompson added a victory in the 100 free.

WRESTLING

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel dropped a pair of matches at a Centennial Conference quad hosted by Gettysburg on Saturday, falling to Washington and Lee and Ursinus.

• Michael Bromley started the conference slate 3-0 last week, including recording three major decisions. He notched a 14-4 win in Wednesday's opener against Gettysburg before registering a 11-0 victory in the Washington and Lee match and 12-1 victory in the Ursinus match. Bromley has a team-high 17 victories on the year. Xavier Howard and Alex LaVeck started the CC slate 2-1. Howard is currently 14-5 while LaVeck is 12-2 with a team-high nine pins.
