SATURDAY (Jan. 14)
Game of the night: Jesup vs. 1A No. 1 Gladbrook-Reinbeck
Originally scheduled to be played at Wartburg on December 17, inclement weather has moved this game to this Saturday, being played at Upper Iowa University. The guard matchup of Ethan Wyant vs. Joe Smoldt is worth the price of admission here. These two teams met at the 1A state tournament last season, with Gladbrook-Reinbeck pulling out a win behind 35 from Smoldt, including 27 in the second half. Wyant and company will need to do a better job slowing Smoldt down if they want to get a bit of revenge in this one. This should be a highly entertaining contest.
