They split the doubleheader against one another this past Monday, and now Central and Buena Vista’s basketball teams will face-off once again this afternoon, this time up in Storm Lake. The Dutch women won 74 – 61 earlier this week, thanks in part to the fact that every player that saw any sort of playing time contributed to the scoreboard. Central also grabbed 12 more rebounds than the Beavers in the contest. The men couldn’t hang onto a late lead, as they let Buena Vista slip out of their hands 84 – 80. Cole Darrow sparked the Beavers’ win with a game-high 19 point effort, but the Dutch also had key turnovers late in the game that head coach, Craig Douma said he wants to see cleared up in this afternoon’s ballgame. The women will tip-off the Iowa Conference doubleheader at 2:00 p.m.
