IHCC Warrior Basketball Preview

REED OVERHEAD DOORS CLASSIC

Time and Place: Games begin at 4:30 p.m today and Saturday at Hellyer Student Life Center. The College of Southern Idaho will play Marshalltown at 4:30 p.m. in the first game of the tournament today, followed by Mid-Michigan against IHCC at 7 p.m. Marshalltown will face Mid-Michigan at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday before CSI and Indian Hills wrap up the tournament at 7.

Records: Second-ranked (DI) Indian Hills is 2-0 overall. Mid-Michigan was 0-1 heading into a game on Thursday at William Penn JV. 13th-ranked College of Southern Idaho is 2-0. Marshalltown is 1-0.

Last year vs. Mid-Michigan: The then-fifth ranked Warriors forced 33 Laker turnovers, leading to several transition baskets for Indian Hills, in a 118-65 IHCC win in the 2012 Reed Overhead Doors Classic, bringing a long night to an end for the squad from Harrison, Michigan. Frank Williams scored 16 points while Majok Deng added 13. Jameel McKay (11 points, 11 rebounds) and Ronnie Stevens (13 points, 10 rebounds) both recorded double-doubles as IHCC dominated the glass with 62 rebounds.

Last year vs. CSI: The Golden Eagles avenged a loss at the 2012 NJCAA National Tournament and beat their former head coach, winning a thriller in overtime over then-fourth ranked IHCC and Barret Peery 96-87 to close out CSI's Boise Office Equipment Invitational over Thanksgiving weekend last year. The Golden Eagles looked like they would have no problem handing IHCC its first loss of last season, leading late in the second half 78-65, before Ronald Ross buried three straight 3-pointers including the game-tying tray with 33 seconds left to spark a 15-2 run to close regulation for the Warriors to force overtime tied at 80-80. McKay and Justin Moss both scored 19 points to lead IHCC with McKay grabbing 20 rebounds. Jaysean Paige scored a game-high 24 points and led CSI with 12 rebounds and six steals.

Coach Barret Peery says: "The next game is always the most important game. Everyone else will be talking about the Southern Idaho game, but we won't. It's one game at a time for us."
