Warrior Notes
• With wins over Albright and Arcadia, head coach Guy Rancourt earned the program’s first Division III Coach of the Week award on Monday.

• The Warriors’ magic number to clinch a playoff spot is five. With a combination of Lycoming wins and losses from Alvernia and Hood, it will clinch a fourth straight playoff berth.

• Lycoming’s 17-game winning streak at home is tied for the second longest in Division III.

• With 1,121 career points, senior Chris Wallace needs six more to pass Jay Cleveland (1984-88) and 10 more to pass Tim Morse (1989-93) for 24th in program history.

• With 23 more points, senior Alex Newbold will become the 32nd Warrior to score 1,000 in his career. He and Wallace would become the third pair of classmates to each top 1,000 career points and the first since Geoff Boblick (1994-98) and Kevin McFarland (1994-98).
