Central Men Suffer First Conference Loss

Three Central players were plagued with the injury bug after Christmas and were forced watch from the sidelines Wednesday night as their Dutch teammates fought hard but dropped a game to Luther College.

The Dutch actually had the lead early with a 24-21 score. The Norse rebounded quickly with a 19-3 run to take the lead 43-31 with 10 minutes to go. Central then put together a 17-6 run to pull within one with 3 minutes to go, but were held without a bucket the remainder of the game. Luther pulled out the win, 53-48.

Jack Bruns led the way for the Dutch with 17 points and 8 rebounds.

Central is now 6-5 overall with a 2-1 conference record. Luther is 6-5 and undefeated in conference play (3-0).

Central will make their first home appearance since December 6th as they welcome Coe College to Pella. It will be a women’s-men’s doubleheader starting at 2PM, with the men hitting the floor at 4PM. You can view a video webcast with live stats at central.edu/athletics. [1]
