Central College survived a late second-half run to capture a 59-56 men’s basketball victory over Eureka College Saturday.  

The Dutch led by as many as nine in the second half, before a 12-4 run by the Red Devils cut the lead to one point with five minutes left in the game.  Brock Caves knocked down three of four crucial free throws down the stretch to seal the win for Central, as he posted his first career double-double with 18 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.  

The Central College men’s basketball team is now 3-1 overall and will begin Iowa Conference play on Wednesday with a home game against Buena Vista University.
