Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -Plenty of big matchups tonight, maybe none bigger than in Hawley where the Nuggets hosts Pelican Rapids, each tied for first in the Heart O'Lakes.

The Vikings will have their hands full trying to contain the Nuggets force down low in Ben Ellefson, who has racked up double doubles at an alarming rate, he just missed one in his last game going for 20 points and nine rebounds.

Ben Ellefson, Hawley junior forward: “I've just been in the paint a lot as I've grown up work on my quickness hopefully it gets better.”

Jed Carlson, Hawley head coach: “He's a tremendous rebounder, tremendous scorer, he's a great kid and I'm fortunate to be his coach.”

Barnesville, Pelican and Hawley are each 7-3 in conference play, Perham just a half game back, all in action tonight.
