The Central men’s and women’s basketball teams will try to send their fans home happy tonight with a pair of wins over different opponents in non-conference action. The women will be playing Nebraska Wesleyan for their contest. The Prairie Wolves are 1 – 3 at this point, and haven’t played any slouches, including an 84 – 53 loss to number 12 ranked Briar Cliff University. The Dutch are trying to stay perfect after beating Waldorf on Saturday, 64 – 55 to move to 3 – 0 on the year. Central’s men will be playing a former conference foe in Cornell tonight for their game. The Dutch were able to squeak out a 74 – 71 win in their non-conference meet-up last year, and Coach Craig Douma says they’ll be facing a lot of the same guys they saw in that contest. You can hear tonight’s doubleheader streamed live at KNIAKRLS.com with Cory Houser and Justin Webster on the call. Pregame coverage is scheduled to start at 5:15 p.m. with tip-off of the women’s game scheduled for 5:30.
