The Central men’s and women’s basketball teams start their 2013 – 14 seasons in exactly seven days. The women will be led onto the court by Chelsea Petersen in her first year as head coach after Mike Jacobsma stepped down towards the beginning of the school year. For the men, they had an exhibition this past Sunday against Drake, where the Dutch fell 90 – 70. Central returns some height; Spencer Bakerink is 6’6” and will primarily play down in the post, but at 6’8”, Matt Greenfield could see some playing time there, but will mostly play at the forward spot. Coach Craig Douma says that the trainers have been working hard with Matt to beef him up a little bit to possibly play both forward and center. The women play at Grinnell next Friday, while the men will be at Monmouth College in Illinois for their first official game of 2013.
