Tip time is 8:00
The Builders are 13-1 in the KCAC, four games out in front. The Builders are 20-2 overall under former Central Christian College coach Matt O’Brien.
Mac is coming off an emotional high, having toppled Tabor on Saturday. The Bulldogs are 2-12 in the KCAC, 5-17 overall. The victory dropped Tabor out of second place and into a tie for fifth as the Bluejays aren’t going to repeat as champions.
In the 6 p.m. women’s game, the Bulldogs will be looking to avoid a letdown as they knocked off No. 16-ranked Tabor on Saturday. Mac is 7-7 in the KCAC and 11-10 overall. Southwestern is just 3-11 in the KCAC and 4-18 overall, but it has been the conference’s hard-luck team with several close losses as it could easily have three or four more wins.
Mac is home on Saturday to take on Sterling.
