The Central College men’s basketball team will host the championship game of the Iowa Conference tournament this afternoon, and with that, a shot at an automatic berth to the national tournament. The league champion Dutch host No. 2-seeded Buena Vista University, who defeated Wartburg 78-72 in Storm Lake Thursday night. Central split the season series with the Beavers.
With a win this evening, the Dutch would earn the conference’s automatic berth into the NCAA Division III tournament – which Central hasn’t made in 15 years. You can hear live coverage of tonight’s Iowa Conference tournament championship on 92.1 fm KRLS, with Eric Gotschall providing the play-by-play. The broadcast will begin at 6:45 p.m. with tip-off between the Dutch and the Beavers set for 7:00 p.m. in Kuyper Fieldhouse.
