It could be their stronger start to this season. It could be because he has one year of experience under his belt. Whatever it is, Coach Craig Douma of the Central men’s basketball team is happier with where they are at now after non-conference play than with where they were at a year ago. Unlike last year, Central’s men had a pair of games this past weekend to help them avoid any kind of rust heading into Iowa Conference play. Douma says that the caliber of those opponents from Saturday and Sunday will definitely help. Central’s men are 7 – 4 and next host Luther a week from tomorrow.
