WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – After clinching a postseason berth with four regular season games to go, the 11th-ranked Lycoming College men’s basketball team will look to keep its two-game lead on first place when it hosts Arcadia University on Saturday, Feb. 3, at Lamade Gym.

Freshman Ramadan Jennings scored a career-high 25 points in the Warriors’ 79-66 win over Alvernia on Wednesday. Seniors Chris Wallace and Alex Newbold each recorded double-doubles for the Warriors (19-2 overall, 10-2 MAC Commonwealth).

Arcadia (11-9 overall, 6-5 MAC Commonwealth)  had a three-game winning streak snapped in its 77-66 loss to Messiah. Phil Pierfy led the Knights with 19 points and 11 rebounds and Josh Scott and Da’Kquan Davis each scored 14.

Warrior Notes
• The Warriors have clinched a MAC Commonwealth tournament spot in four straight seasons, the second longest streak in program history.

• Lycoming’s winning streak of 18 games in Lamade Gym is the second longest in Division III.

• With 1,172 career points, senior Chris Wallace needs 13 more to pass Eric Anthony (2007-10) for 20th in program history.

• Wallace and senior Alex Newbold are the first pair of classmates in program history to each post 1,000 career points and 500 career rebounds.

• Freshman Ramadan Jennings’ 25 points against Alvernia are the most for a Warrior freshman since Kevin Anthony (2010-14) scored 27 against Elizabethtown on Feb. 9, 2011.

• With two more made 3-pointers, junior T.J. Duckett will become the fifth Warrior in program history to hit 50 or more 3-pointers in three different seasons.
