(Neola) Tri-Center meets Underwood in a Class 1A District 15 Semi-Final tonight. The Trojans improved to 10-12 overall on the season with their 66-61 overtime win over 16-win West Monona in the first round. The Trojans got 20 points from senior Nick Guarino in the win. Underwood stormed past Logan-Magnolia late last week 57-38 to get back to the district semi-finals.
This will be the third time Tri-Center and Underwood matchup this season. The Eagles have had the upper hand on both December 19th, 61-50 and January 31st, 67-45.
Tri-Center Coach Chad Harder though, says his team needs to play fundemental basketball and adds that the team feels really good about their chances if they play their best basketball.
The winner moves into a district final on Saturday. Awaiting on the other side of the bracket will be either 5th ranked and undefeated Ar-We-Va or 14-8 Boyer Valley.
