Reversal of Fortune: Second-ranked Warriors wipe away halftime deficit against West Plains


“Our guys did a good job scoring 60 points two-straight nights coming out of the locker room,” Peery said. “The guys overcame some adversity this weekend, which is good for us. We had to win a little bit ugly, but the guys figured out a way to outscore a quality team by 21 points in the second half.”

The comeback win may have been exactly what the second-ranked Warriors needed as they leave the friendly confines of the Hellyer Center for the first time this season. Before heading to Florida for the Thanksgiving Weekend Northwest Florida State Classic, IHCC will look to snap the 20-game home court winning streak of sixth-ranked (DII) Iowa Lakes tonight in Estherville at 7 p.m.

“We’ve got a whole set of problems with the three opponents we’ve got on the road next week,” Peery said. “Iowa Lakes should feel confident going in having won their last 20 home games. We’re going to have to be tough. We’re going to have to be energetic, but I think we’ve proved this weekend we can come together despite some adversity and still come out on top.”
