Swarthmore claimed the top seed in the Centennial Conference with a two-point win vs. F&M while Wittenberg won a thriller over rival Wooster thanks to two game-saving shots by Jacob Bertemes. Elsewhere Middlebury and New Jersey City were bounced from their tournaments and St. John's swept rival St. Thomas.
Wittenberg? No longer unbeaten. Middlebury? Fell again. MIT? Still reeling. Plus Swarthmore went down in double overtime, Lyco lost its third in four games, York fell at home and the top 10 didn't agree with Eastern Connecticut so much. More in the wrapup.
