Central Christian College’s women’s basketball team begins its season tonight in the Grand View University (Iowa) Classic against top-notch competition.

The Lady Tigers play the host school at 7:30 p.m., then take on Mount Mercy at 2 p.m. Saturday. Mount Mercy received some mention in the national preseason poll.

Chris Honeck begins his second year at the CCC helm. The Lady Tigers were 8-23 last year and lost only one senior off that team, Harley Pate.

The Lady Tigers will be led by 5-9 senior Quamisha Spence, who was a double-double machine last year and will be one of the top players in the MCAC. The roster looks very much like last year’s since there are a host of returnees. Four freshmen have come aboard.

The Lady Tigers’ home opener is Tuesday against Barclay College.
