Series History: The penultimate week of the regular season starts on Tuesday when Franklin & Marshall hosts Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays hold a 44-31 lead in the all-time series, largely thanks to an eight-game win streak dating back to 2013. 

The second contest of the three-game week arrives on Thursday as McDaniel comes to Lancaster. The Diplomats trail the Green Terror 40-35 in the previous 75 meetings, but F&M took the previous matchup earlier this season by a 61-57 margin on Dec. 10.

The Diplomats close out the week on the road, visiting Washington on Saturday. F&M holds a 27-10 lead in the series, including an active three-game win streak.

Play for Kay: Thursday's meeting with McDaniel is the annual "Play 4 Kay" game, held in honor of legendary North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow, who in 2009 lost her battle with breast cancer. Ribbons will be available for $1.00, and the team will be taking collections at the game for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to honor Coach Yow's memory and raise awareness of the disease.

Last Week: Ursinus went up on F&M early in the first quarter, and never looked back on the way to a 53-35 win over the Diplomats on Wednesday night. Erica Brown tied the game high and led F&M with 15 points, while Kristin Hamill grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds in the losing effort.

On Saturday, Muhlenberg finished the first quarter on a 14-1 run, and never allowed F&M any closer as the Diplomats dropped a 79-47 decision to the Mules.

DiCarlo Honored: Prior to Saturday's game, AnnMarie DiCarlo was awarded the Aril Bryant Award by Muhlenberg head coach Ron Rohn. The award, named after former Muhlenberg guard Aril Bryant who passed away from breast cancer in 2009, recognizes one player on each team in the Centennial Conference (CC) for outstanding service in the community.

DiCarlo earned the award for her extensive community service, ranging from working with disabled and underprivileged children, providing tutoring services for low-income students, and numerous other activities.

Last Time We Met Johns Hopkins: A fast start and a two-point lead at halftime did not hold up for the Diplomats on Dec. 7, falling to the Blue Jays 67-53.
