Central Christian College’s basketball teams will try to complete a season sweep of Grace University on Tuesday when the teams meet in Omaha.

The women’s teams play at 5:30, with the men scheduled for 7:30.

The CCC women take a 9-13 record into their game with the Royals. In the first meeting between the teams, Central outlasted Grace 57-50 in a hard-fought contest.

The Tiger men will be trying to get back on the horse as they had their 12-game winning streak snapped on Saturday with an overtime loss to College of the Ozarks after having a two-point lead with a second left to play, but the Bobcats ran a play to draw a foul.

Central, 20-6 overall, expects to be pushed as it defeated the Royals 94-78 in the first meeting. This week wraps up regular-season play for both CCC teams as they host Haskell on Tuesday and College of the Ozarks on Saturday.
