Pella Basketball Teams Face Rival Oskaloosa Tonight

The Pella basketball teams host rival Oskaloosa tonight in their second Little Hawkeye Conference contest this week. Lady Dutch Head Coach Jerod Garland says little is known about the Indians this early in the season.

“They’ll probably be fairly quick. I don’t think they have a whole lot of size from last year, and other than that, to be honest with you, we don’t know a whole lot about them,” says Garland.

For the second half of the doubleheader, boys Head Coach Mark Core says he anticipates another intense rivalry match-up with Oskaloosa.

“This’ll be our first rivalry game of the year. I think it’ll be emotional and heated and aggressive, and I think we’ll be fortunate to get out of there with a win,” says Core.

Coverage of Pella’s home game against Oskaloosa will be broadcast on 92.1 fm KRLS and streamed online at with Eric Gotschall providing the play-by-play, with pre-game coverage starting at around 6:00 p.m.
