WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Looking to keep pace for the No. 1 seed in the MAC Commonwealth, the 16th-ranked Lycoming College men’s basketball team will look to avenge an earlier defeat when it hosts Lebanon Valley on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at Lamade Gym.

The Warriors (19-4 overall, 10-4 MAC Commonwealth) dropped a close game to Stevenson in its last outing, 71-68. Freshman Ramadan Jennings notched his second 20-point effort in three games, scoring 20 points to go with seven rebounds. Senior Chris Wallace recorded his third double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Lebanon Valley (14-9 overall, 8-6 MAC Commonwealth) dropped its third straight game when it fell to Arcadia, 69-60. The Flying Dutchmen are led by two of the top three scorers in the conference in Sam Light and Andy Orr.

Warrior Notes
• With a win today, Lycoming will record back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time in program history.

• With 1,188 career points, senior Chris Wallace needs 17 more to pass Matt Stackhouse (2000-04) for 19th in program history.

• With one more steal, Wallace will become the third Warrior in program history and the first since Jerald Williams (2009-13) to record back-to-back seasons with 50 or more steals.

• With 1,043 career points, senior Alex Newbold needs 18 more to pass Ihsaan Davis (2009-13) for 30th in program history.

• With four more assists, Newbold will become just the second player in program history and the first since Jonathan Pribble (2002-06) to post 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 200 assists in a career.

• Freshman Ramadan Jennings is the first Warrior freshmen to have two 20-point games in a season since junior T.J. Duckett had three such efforts in 2015-16.
