There’s no rest for the weary.

Central Christian College’s basketball teams are back in action tonight at Alexander Arena to take on Manhattan Christian College.

The women start at 5:30 p.m., with the men at 7:30.

The Lady Tigers are seeking their first win after four losses. They are coming off a 71-60 setback on Saturday to Grace University despite 16 points by Heather Crittenden and 14 by Kylie Laskowski.

Manhattan Christian was to have competed here this weekend in Central’s Classic for Christ, but pulled out after the tragic death last week of Thunder freshman Sally Rowell, an El Dorado High graduate. CCC officials said the game is on for tonight. A celebration of life for her was held on Saturday.

The Central men are looking to make it five wins in six games. They went 2-0 in their Classic last week with hard-earned victories over Grace University and KCAC member Oklahoma Wesleyan.

The Tigers were 3-0 last week, as they also knocked off McPherson College. They play an exhibition game on Wednesday at Fort Hays State.
