Scouting the Panthers: Eisenhower has stumbled to a 0-13 start in the Big 12 Conference. The Panthers have struggled to generate offense this season and average about 48 points per game. Six-foot-two senior guard Brandis Stanley, 6-3 senior forward Killiean Sanders, 5-9 senior guard Deshawn Davis and 6-4 forward Logan Hiser are top contributors for the Panthers. Jabree Bond-Flournoy, a 5-9 junior, also will contribute off the bench.

Zoning out: The Raiders struggled to score against Peoria Notre Dame's 2-3 zone Saturday, as they dropped their fifth consecutive game on the road, falling 58-45. QND shot 39 percent from the field. The Raiders were outrebounded 26-11 by PND, Matt McPherson led the Raiders with six rebounds.

Last Step: This is QND's last regular season game before the top-seeded Raiders open up the Class 3A Galesburg Regional. QND will open against fourth-seeded Genesco or fifth-seeded Alleman at 6 p.m. Feb. 26 at Galesburg.
