Tate Handsaker, a senior graduate of Nevada High School, is a member of the Central College men’s basketball team.

Fifth-year coach Craig Douma returns 10 letterwinners and all five starters from last year’s 10-10 squad that lost in the opening round of the NCAA tournament to eventual national champions St. Thomas (Minn.) The Dutch have won 17 conference titles — including 11 since 1975, more than any other school. They’ve made 11 NCAA Division III tournament appearances.

Handsaker has won two varsity letters and been named the Defensive Player of the Year Award for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.
