Big Time Hoops at Swarthmore This Weekend

Yes, it’s still only February, but tournament madness is upon us already this weekend at Swarthmore College’s Tarble Pavilion on the campus.

By virtue of its 14-4 conference record, Swarthmore’s men’s basketball team is the #1 seed and the host of the 2016 Centennial Conference tournament.

The Garnet play in the second game of the semifinal double header, tipping off at 8 p.m. against the winner of the Johns Hopkins-Ursinus play-in game. Franklin & Marshall plays Dickinson in the first semi at 6 p.m.

Saturday’s game will pit the Friday winners in the conference final starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 per day, $3 for students 13-18, and free for children and Swarthmore College students with ID.

The Swarthmore men have an overall record of 20-5 and are ranked #21 nationally among NCAA Division 3 schools.
