The South Wolverines are looking to stay unbeaten on the season, and jump 6 points on Dimond for first place in the Cook Inlet Conference. The West Eagles are coming off a win over Service, that secured a third place tie with the Cougars in the CIC. West can take over sole possession of third and add to their eight game win streak with victory over South.
