The Central College basketball teams visit Coe this afternoon for an Iowa Conference women’s and men’s doubleheader in Cedar Rapids.

The Central women will have their hands full with the defending conference co-champions, as the Kohawks are 16-2 overall and 8-1 in league play. Coe edged the Dutch 66-61 in Pella on January 8th. The Central women carry a 4-15 overall record and 1-9 conference mark into Cedar Rapids this afternoon and are coming off of a loss Wednesday at Wartburg.

In the second game of the double-dip, the Central men go for their third straight Iowa Conference victory and will look to avenge a 68-45 loss to the Kohawks earlier this month. Coe is 13-5 overall and 7-2 in conference play, while the Dutch are 10-8 overall and 6-4 in the league.

You can hear both games broadcast live on 92.1 fm KRLS with Eric Gotschall and David Hecht providing the call. Tip-off of the women’s game is set for 2:00 p.m. in Cedar Rapids, with the men’s contest to follow around 4:00 p.m.
