A 6-minute scoreless drought kept the Central College men’s basketball team out of striking distance as Coe College breezed past the Dutch 68-45 Saturday.
Battling injuries throughout the holiday break, the Dutch saw a full lineup return to action but were unable to find a rhythm as the Kohawks went on an 18-1 run late in the first half.
Offensively, guard Brock Caves led Central with 12 points followed by guard Demarco Turner with 10. Forward Jack Bruns and Caves each collected six rebounds. The Central men are now 6-6 overall and 2-2 in the Iowa Conference with a road game at Simpson up next on the schedule.
