Matching starts to the season for the Central College women’s and men’s basketball programs have both squads feeling confident about their play entering the first game of the Iowa Conference schedule, tonight against Buena Vista University.  

In the women’s contest, the 3-1 Dutch host a Buena Vista team that is 3-4 after a pair of disappointing losses at last weekend’s Simpson College Classic.  The Beavers feature a strong power forward inside and a pair of potent three-point shooters that will test Central’s defense.  

On the men’s side, head coach Mike Boschee’s squad is also off to a 3-1 start, but faces their toughest test of the season with a Buena Vista team that returns most of last year’s line-up and was selected to finish second in the Iowa Conference.  

The Iowa Conference women’s and men’s basketball doubleheader is scheduled to tip-off at 6:00 p.m. tonight in Kuyper Gymnasium on the Central College campus in Pella, and can be heard live on and joined in progress on 92.1 fm KRLS, following the Marion County PM Sports Page.
