IHCC is No. 1: The Warriors 124-115 regional win over Northeast on Wednesday helped the Warriors to secure its spot as the nation's top offense.

Indian Hills has an excellent to keep up its top national scoring pace tonight against Clinton based on recent history. The Warriors beat the Cougars last year in the Hy-Vee Classic, 121-63, in the last meeting between the two teams

Coach Peery says: "We're going to get everybody's best effort. We had to battle through a lot of foul trouble on Wednesday and found a way to get it done."
