Kuemper Catholic is 11-3 overall, they'll try to bounce back from ther first conference loss of the year suffered at Creston on Tuesday. Harlan's loss to Kuemper Catholic counted as a non-conference game and thus the Cyclones stand alone atop the Hawkeye Ten standings.

Trey Lansman had 17 points for Harlan in the loss. It was the only time this year that Harlan has been held under 50 points.
