Central Christian College’s men are finally home on Tuesday at Alexander Arena, but the women will stay out on the road as both teams are back on the hardwood.

The Central men will be hosting Union College at 7 p.m., while the women head to Oklahoma to play Bacone, with game time 5:30.

For the Tiger men, a 12th straight win and 20th overall is highly anticipated. Central is 13-0 lifetime against Union, but the teams haven’t met in four years.

This is a tuneup before Saturday’s big game at College of the Ozarks, which renews an old MCAC rivalry. The Bobcats have won 23 of the 26 games all time.

Central’s women take a 9-11 record into their game at Bacone. The teams have met only once, that coming way back in 2006 with the Tigers prevailing 73-63.

The Lady Tigers have no rest as they play at College of the Ozarks on Wednesday. Central has never beaten the Bobcats in 23 meetings.
