Kevin Tucker's picture

Tonight Glewood will travel to Harlan for a girl/boy double header against the Cyclones. Fans can listen to the game on KNOD 105.3 FM. The girls game will count towards their Hawkeye Ten record. The boys game will not count towards their Hawkeye Ten record.


The girls are now 6-12 overall and 3-5 in the conference. Harlan currently has a record of 8-9 overall and 5-4 in the conference. Glenwood and Harlan played against each other back on January 13th in Glenwood. The Cyclones won 52-47 against the Rams. Senior Nicole Lange played a great game against the Rams. Lange scored twenty-four points on 8-11 shooting for the Cyclones. Brooklyn Taylor was the leading scorer for the Rams with fifteen points. Glenwood only lost by five points despite shooting 34% 16-46 as a team. The Rams will need to shoot better tonight on the road. Glenwood’s confidence is rising and I look for the Rams to play tough against the Cyclones.


The boys are now 15-2 on the season and 8-1 in the conference. Glenwood’s  two losses this season have been on the road but I don’t think that will happen tonight. Harlan has lost two of their last three ball games (Lost at Denison 64-63, Won at Kuemper 80-73 and Lost vs. Atlantic 70-62). The Cyclones will be ready for revenge against the Rams tonight. Back on January 13th the Rams won 84-79 over Harlan. Andrew Blum scored twenty-nine for the Rams while Nate Mohr finished with twenty-three against the Cyclones. Logan Klaassen and Shane Chamberlain lead the way for Harlan with nineteen points a piece. The key to the first game was Glenwood’s ability to get to the free throw line. Glenwood shot thirty-six free throws against Harlan and made twenty-seven. Harlan shot 9-17 from the free throw line but shot 59% from the floor including fourteen three pointers.

Tonight Coach Osborn will have his ball club ready to go against the Rams but so will Coach Schulte. Do I think Harlan will shoot 59% from the floor? No, but the Cyclones should get the line more at home. Do I think Glenwood can shoot thirty-six free throws on the road? No chance, but the Rams will win with good defense and three point shooting.


Good luck Glenwood!
