Clutch shooting in a basketball game is what separates good teams from the rest of the pack.

Saturday night, in what could be called Calvinís most vital game thus far in the season, the Knights took on the Britons of Albion and both teams showed why they are at the top of the MIAA standings.

After trailing for nearly 34 minutes of the contest, Calvin took a 62-60 lead down the stretch on the strength of a Matt Veltema triple and never looked back, en route to an 80-70 victory over Albion in a showdown of teams vying for first place in the MIAA standings.

Calvin continued its hot streak in 2010 conference play Saturday afternoon with a 68-61 victory against the Adrian Bulldogs at Van Noord Arena. 

The Knights led by as many as 21 points early on in the second half but a 14-0 Adrian run sparked a furious comeback that had the Bulldogs within six with only minutes to play.  This would prove to be too little too late though for Adrian as the Knights closed the game out and won their fourth MIAA game this season to remain undefeated in conference play. Calvin continues to hold a share of first place with Albion in the league standings as the Britons also improved to 4-0 in league play with an 81-53 win at Alma Saturday.
