The regular-season home schedule is winding down for Central Christian College’s basketball teams.

The Tiger teams are home tonight and Saturday.

Haskell comes to town tonight for games at 5:30 and 7:30, respectively, at Alexander Arena.

The teams met just over two weeks ago. The Haskell women, who are 20-3 lifetime against Central, rolled to an 85-48 victory. The Lady Tigers are showing the effects of a long season with just seven players as after being 9-8 at one point, they are now 9-14 as they have dropped six straight.

The Central men will try to regain their confidence as they have lost their past two games after winning 12 in a row. They won the earlier meeting with Haskell in Lawrence, 78-67. The Tigers are now 20-7 with the AII Tournament looming.

The Central teams will have rematches on Saturday with College of the Ozarks, with game times 3:00 and 5:00 at Alexander Arena.
