Basketball 2/9 | Gettysburg vs. F&M

Two of my favorite teams went head to head in a Wednesday night doubleheader in Gettysburg. The Gettysburg Women fought through a game, where in the second half F&M battled back within four, but were held at bay and the Bullets eventually prevailed 66-55 over the Diplomats. The Gettysburg Men, hampered by a diminished roster, fell behind early to F&M. The Bullets weren't without highlights when Senior forward Andrew Powers surpassed a 1,880 career point record set by Ron Warner ’62 late in the second half, ending with 1,882 on the day. The main attraction was Diplomat head coach Glenn Robinson, who in his 1,100th career game, won his 800th over Gettysburg 68-46 - becoming only the 13th coach in NCAA history to do so.
