MEN’S BASKETBALL: Garnet Break On Through
A Centennial men’s basketball game lacking much of the luster given to other contests around the Conference, went from a low-scoring turnover party to another double-overtime classic in the rivalry between Swarthmore and Washington. For the fourth time in seven years the two Centennial Conference rivals went to two extra periods, and just like the three time previous, Swarthmore (4-12, 1-8 CC) came away the victors. Garnet center Ian McCormick controlled action in the post again, racking up another double-double (29 points, 19 rebounds) and senior Matt Kurman added 16 points, as Swarthmore outlasted the Shoremen 93-87 at Tarble Pavilion Wednesday evening.
McCormick Honored Again
Swarthmore senior center Ian McCormick was named to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week on January 22. This is the second time McCormick has been selected by the web site.
