The Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad will play their first home game in nearly a month. However, waiting for the Panthers are their cross-county rivals Pella. Knoxville is coming off a 32-point loss to Norwalk on Tuesday, and are sitting on a three game losing streak. Coach Jeff Larson tells KNIA/KRLS Sports they have been trying to simulate what Pella will do defensively in practice, going so far as to put two additional players on the court. Larson says Pella plays a swarming defense and it feels like you are playing against seven players. You can hear the play-by-play on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA with Derek Cardwell and Mike Cunningham.
