The Mid-Prairie boys are 1-0 and will play No. 4 West Branch tonight.

The Golden Hawks are shooting 34.6 percent from the floor after one game and just above 50 percent from the free throw line.

They are led by Reid Miller who is shooting 36 percent from the floor and 50 percent from three point range with 11 points.

No. 4 West Branch is 2-0, shooting close to 50 percent from the floor and 67 percent from the free throw line, with 123 total points in two games, they also add in 75 rebounds.

The Bears are led by Ryan Murry who is shooting 43 percent with 53 points on the season already.

Golden Hawk head coach Chris Kern said tonight’s game is about doing the easy things right.

“We have to box out, rebound, we need to stay out of foul trouble and we need to get to the line against them and hit free throws when we get to the line, we need to keep turnovers down, get to the line and have a couple of guys step up and shoot the ball well,” Kern said.

Mid-Prairie and West Branch play tonight after the girl’s game in West branch.
