McPherson College and Central Christian College’s basketball teams close out the 2017 portion of the schedule this weekend.

The McPherson College women are playing in the Kansas Wesleyan Coyote Classic today and Saturday in Salina. Mac, 9-4, takes on high-powered University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma today at 2:00, then plays Doane University at noon on Saturday.

The Mac men head to Hays on Saturday for an exhibition game against Fort Hays State, which features McPherson High grads Kyler Kinnamon and Payton Stephens. Mac is 3-13 on the year, having won its last two games in Puerto Rico right before Christmas.

This game does not count on Mac’s record since Fort Hays is NCAA Division II.

Central Christian College’s men also play an exhibition game on Saturday at NCAA Division II Emporia State. The Tigers are 7-4 on the season. Game time is 3 p.m.

The Central women, 1-11, are done for 2017. Their next action is a home game Jan. 4 against Texas Wesleyan.
