Yes, the Central men’s basketball team went from worst-to-first in the Iowa Conference last season. Yes, the Dutch lost several key senior members of that squad that went all the way to the NCAA Division III National Tournament in March. No, says Coach Craig Douma, this will not be a team that takes a year off to “rebuild.” Nile Eckermann is back, as is freshman sensation, Colby Taylor. Douma says that in preparations for last season, Taylor’s progression surprised even the coaching staff. Douma adds that recruiting went extremely well in the offseason, and that the Dutch will have a lot of talent for the next several years.
