The Pella boys basketball team is now 4-1 going into Friday’s meeting with cross-town rival Pella Christian; and the team’s unselfish play and even scoring distribution is one of the reason for the team’s success. Little Dutch Head Coach Mark Core says a point of emphasis with this year’s squad has been to have each player focus on utilizing his strengths at the offensive end.

Core says an example would be that a player like Nick Dorman slashes to the basket well, while Deckar Lynch can be more dangerous as an outside shooter, and Nathan Buchheit and Blaine Forsythe shoot well from mid-range; so those are the opportunities he wants those players to take. Pella’s most recent success was a 55-42 victory over Grinnell Tuesday night.
