Two of the hottest men’s basketball teams going right now, Central Christian College and Bethany College, will trade bombs Saturday at Alexander Arena.

The Tigers have won four in a row to move to 5-3 on the season while the Swedes have won four in a row to stand 6-3, 3-0 in the KCAC.

This is only the fourth-ever meeting between the schools, the lone CCC win coming in 2014.

Most of the games have been close. Bethany won last year’s meeting 89-85 after CCC had won 80-76 the year before. Until that game, the teams had taken an eight-year break in the series.

Central is coming off a 91-53 pasting of Barclay College, while the Swedes secured a key road victory at Southwestern 81-76, both of those games coming on Tuesday.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
