Central Christian College’s men’s basketball team, which wraps up the regular season on Saturday hosting York College, has qualified for postseason play.

According to an announcement on Thursday, the Tigers have qualified for the AII Conference Tournament.

Central is 17-9 on the season, but just 5-7 in its last 12 games. All games of the A.I.I. Basketball Championships will be broadcast live on the Mount Mercy University Stretch Internet Game Central portal (portal.stretchinternet.com/mtmercy/).

The Central women, who play tonight at Hillsdale, will be done after Saturday’s game here with York.
