The Centre College men are getting the job done on defense again this season, and Friday was another good day at the office. On a night when a high turnover total put them in jeopardy, the Colonels relied on their defense to keep an offensive-minded opponent in check and keep pace with the leaders in their league. They hounded Oglethorpe's shooters in the second half to break open a close game and went on to a 67-57 victory at Alumni Gymnasium. It marked the fourth time in five Southern Athletic Association games that Centre (11-3, 4-1 SAA)

The Centre College women's soccer team overcame an early 2-0 deficit to beat host Oglethorpe University 3-2 in double overtime here Sunday. "What a difference a half makes," said Centre coach Jay Hoffman. "Oglethorpe outshot us 6-5 the first half and got two unassisted goals in the first 23 minutes. We were playing a bit slow and doing a lot wrong. "The second half we outshot them 11-4 and for the game had 13 corner kicks to their one and most were in the second half. I was really pleased with our effort and how we bounced back from a 2-0 deficit.

The bank may not have been open, but the shot counted just the same. Senior guard Kyle Roby banked in a 20-foot jump shot with 1.5 seconds to play in overtime as Centre College rallied to defeat Oglethorpe 74-72 Friday night at Alumni Gymnasium. Roby said the winning play was originally designed for freshmen Thomas Britt or Matt Nestheide, but both were guarded closely and couldn't get a shot off. Roby then used a Coy Zerhusen screen to get off the shot that gave the Colonels a win. "I tried to draw contact and I lost the ball partially as I went up for the shot," Roby said.
