A trip to the Class 3-A State Championship game will be on the line for the Pella boys basketball team Thursday night, and it’s going to take a little work, to say the least. The Little Dutch will have to go up against top-seeded Mount Pleasant, who narrowly defeated Pella 63-61 in Mount Pleasant during the regular season.

Pella is the fifth-seeded team in the tournament field and enters the game with a 21-3 overall record; while Mount Pleasant is 21-1 after defeating Western Dubuque in the opening round. The game starts at 6:35 p.m. at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines and will be broadcast live on 92.1 fm KRLS, starting at 6:00 p.m. Thursday night.
