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.
