Central College closes out regular season play on the basketball court this afternoon, as the Dutch host Wartburg in an Iowa Conference doubleheader. It will be the season finale for the Central women, who are 6-17 overall and 1-13 in the Iowa Conference. The Dutch were defeated by Wartburg in Waverly earlier this season.

The men’s game, meanwhile, provides a tune-up for both squads for the Iowa Conference Tournament. The Central men have bounced back from a six-game losing streak in January to win their last five games, and take on a Knights squad they defeated 76-69 in Waverly on January 4th. The Dutch are 17-7 overall and 8-7 in league play.

You can hear the live play-by-play of both games with Eric Gotschall providing the call from Kuyper Gymnasium in Pella. Coverage begins at 1:45 p.m. with tip-off of the women’s game set for 2:00 p.m.
