Scouting the Titans: West Hancock comes into its rematch with QND having four of its last five games. Paxton Harmon, who is the Titans' leading scorer, dropped a season-high 37 points in West Hancock's win over Unity last Tuesday. Senior 6-foot-5 forward Parker Gibbs provides West Hancock with toughness underneath the basket. Seniors Austin Hardy and Coy Dorothy will also be counted to contribute offensively for the Titans.

Old-fashioned offense: QND stayed with Peoria Manual despite lacking scoring from the perimeter. The Raiders only attempted four 3-pointers during their 64-59 loss Saturday. Sam Douglas made the Raiders only 3-pointer during the second quarter.

Last time out: QND blasted a Titans team playing without Harmon 59-20 in the championship game of the Gully Transportation/Suns Classic Tip-off Tournament Nov. 24 at The Pit. Hardy and Gibbs led the Titans with six points. Alex Fitch led the Raiders with 25 points.
