2018-02-14 Turnaround has TCNJ poised for postseason play Last season TCNJ needed to beat Rutgers-Newark in the regular season finale to make the NJAC playoffs, and didn't. The Lions close the regular season against Rutgers-Newark tonight, but they are a better team in a better position with postseason play guaranteed.
2018-02-14 Titans back in national contention A frustrating freshman season gave Illinois Wesleyan's seniors a chip that they've carried on their shoulders for three years. It led them to the NCAA tournament last year, and the Titans want even more postseason success this year. More in Around the Central.
2018-02-14 Springer providing bounce off the bench When Messiah lost starting forward Alecia Rohrer to injury early in the season, Leah Springer stepped in and led the team to a 9-0 start. Now Rohrer is back and Springer comes off the bench to give the Falcons a potent low-post scoring punch.

2018-02-15 Whitworth not asking what if What if the refs had made a different call at the end of Whitworth's last-second loss to Whitman? What if the Pirates hadn't lost one of their best players to a season-ending injury? Don't bother asking Whitworth these questions because the Pirates are charting their course toward another NCAA Tournament.
2018-02-13 Making every game count Madison Steele thought her UT-Dallas women's basketball career might be over when she ruptured her Achilles. As it turns out, she's not done, although she isn't quite 100 percent.
