LANCASTER, Pa. – The time and date has been set for Wednesday's Centennial Conference first-round game as fifth-seed Ursinus will travel to the Main Line to take on fourth-seed Haverford 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Haverford's Calvin Gooding Arena.

Ursinus (13-12, 12-8) and Haverford (17-8, 12-8) split their season series with Haverford winning at home on December 7 by a 47-42 score, before Ursinus defeated Haverford 65-52 on February. Haverford got the four seed as they defeated Johns Hopkins one time during this season, while Ursinus was swept.

This marks the second straight season that Ursinus has qualified for the conference playoffs, while Haverford qualified for the conference tournament for the first time in program history.
