The smoking-hot Central Christian College men’s basketball team will see if its game travels well after a long distance when it heads to New Mexico for a pair of weekend games.

The Tigers, 7-0 in January, take on Northern New Mexico at 7 p.m. Friday, then play Johnson and Wales at 3 p.m. Saturday as part of the AII schedule.

These are the same opponents Central swept last weekend at Alexander Arena. The Tigers defeated Northern New Mexico 84-73 and Johnson and Wales, 80-68.

The Tigers are in the midst of a five-game road trip as next week they play at Haskell and Crowley’s Ridge College before finally coming home on Feb. 7 to play Union College.
