A showdown of local boys basketball powers takes place tonight in Monroe, as the Mustangs host nearby Pella Christian in the Class 2A District Semifinals. The Eagles enter the game coming off of a 63-37 dismantling of Albia in their first round contest on Monday night, while the Mustangs hope to be ready for a playoff run, entering tonight’s game off of a first round bye.
The two teams met early in the regular season in a non-conference match-up that saw Pella Christian hand PCM one of only two losses on the season – a 53-49 thriller in Monroe. The Mustangs seem to be hitting their stride entering the playoffs, though, boasting an impressive 15-game win streak and a 19-2 overall record. The Eagles are 13-7.
You can hear coverage of tonight’s Class 2A boys District Tournament Semifinal between Pella Christian and PCM on 92.1 fm KRLS with Eric Gotschall and Mark Amadeo providing the call. The broadcast begins at 6:40 p.m. tonight.
