The Central men’s and women’s basketball teams will be looking to push their respective records to 3 – 0 this season as they both board the bus to travel for their games tonight. On the men’s side, they’re coming off an impressive victory over Fontbonne by a final of 80 – 66. Five Dutch men were in double figures in points, and they out-rebounded the visitors 50 – 43. Tonight, they’ll be travelling to Mount Vernon to play a 1 – 0 Cornell team, who won their game over Principia on Saturday, 76 – 65. On the women’s side, they’re still on the road following their second straight victory this past Saturday, in a 68 – 51 thumping of Crown. Tonight, they’ll be travelling to Carlinville, Illinois, to play Blackburn, a team that has had its problems offensively, only scoring 76 points in two losses to Wheaton and Illinois College. The women will tip-off at 6:00 p.m. tonight, while the men start at 7:30.
