Comparing their recent struggles to their team last year, Pella Christian head boys’ basketball coach, Larry Hessing said that his guys need to get the ball inside more.
“It’s something we’ll have to work on as well, trying to be aggressive,” Hessing said. “We’ve talked about that. I know when we improved a lot last year it was because we got better at our dribble-drive penetration within our offense.”
Hessing also told KNIA/KRLS Sports that they’ll be working at being more aggressive to the basket, even on the defensive side of the ball, and use their height to more of an advantage than they have thus far in the season when it comes to rebounding. The Eagles’ boys’ record is 5 – 2, and have a showdown with the Little Dutch coming up next to begin 2013.
