Twelve of the Central men’s basketball team’s 14 Iowa Conference games last year were decided by ten points or less. Half of those 14 were decided by five points or less. Why wouldn’t this season’s conference schedule start any differently? The Dutch were able to escape with an 84 – 82 win over Luther on Wednesday, and now have their sights set on a 2 – 0 record with a showdown with Dubuque coming up tomorrow afternoon. Coach Craig Douma says that the returners from last year’s team were unsatisfied by how league play went last year and have some things to show the other seven conference schools this season. Central and Dubuque are scheduled to tip-off at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow.
