(Guthrie Center) For the second time this season Guthrie Center will take on Earlham in West Central Conference play. The two teams played in the season opener with Guthrie Center winning 57-45. Tonight's (Tuesday) matchup is a vital game for the Tigers in the conference standings as they try to take a firm hold of 2nd place in the standings behind leader Des Moines Christian.
The Tiger's are coming off of a 47-39 loss to Woodward-Granger on Saturday. A loss that came on the heels of perhaps the team's biggest win of the season, a 51-42 decision over Van Meter, on Friday.
Coach Seth Poldberg says the team struggled from 3-point range (2/17, 11%) in the loss that dropped them to 8-2 overall this season. It was an uncharacteristic cold night for a team that is shooting 32.3% from long range on the year.
