GRAND RAPIDS, Iowa — It will be late-night basketball for Central Christian College’s men’s team tonight as it competes in the AII Conference Tournament.

The Tigers play the 9:15 p.m. late game against old nemesis College of the Ozarks. Central is the No. 5 seed and Ozarks is the No. 4.

A Tiger upset — it lost both regular-season meetings between the teams — and it would most likely take on top-seed Mount Mercy in Saturday’s semifinals. Game times for Saturday will be determined off Friday’s results.

Central is 17-10 on the season after starting the year 12-2.

On the other side of the bracket, Washington Adventist takes on Rochester (Mich.), while Northern New Mexico takes on York.
