Four ranked teams vying for conference titles will highlight a home basketball doubleheader tonight in the Tulip City.
The Pella Lady and Little Dutch will host the Fillies and Mustangs of Dallas Center-Grimes.
For Pella’s No. 1 girls, they will have their first major test without Kiara Bradley on the floor. Head Coach Jerod Garland says the real challenge will be stopping the No. 9 Fillies’ talented backcourt, led by Jenna Borchers, who is averaging just under 15 points per game.
Despite DCG’s 7-5 record, only one loss has come to a non-ranked team, and in their seven wins, they’ve given up just 30 points per contest.
No. 3 Pella’s boys will also have tough match up against No. 5 DCG, who dropped their first contest of the year Tuesday. Both the Little Dutch and Mustangs remain a half-game behind Pella Christian in the conference race, and both team’s only losses have come to the Eagles.
The Pella boys may be hoping for a little more cushion on the scoreboard as well, as every Little Hawkeye Conference game on their schedule so far has been decided by two points or less.
Coverage from Pella High School begins at 6 p.m. on KNIAKRLS.com via the KRLS2 team, with Andrew Schneider, Brian Vande Lune, and Mike Buchheit on the call.
