Eagles’ Communication Took Big Leap Forward Against Pella

Wrapping up their 2012 schedule with a loss and with players perhaps a bit out of sync with one another, the Pella Christian boys’ basketball team had a few weeks to work on talking with one another. Coach Larry Hessing told KNIA/KRLS Sports that his players really didn’t have a problem talking with one another in the hallways and in the classroom, but when it came time to communicate on the hardwood, all of that seemed to evaporate. After their win over Pella last Friday, Hessing said his players, despite the loud environment, did a better job at improving that aspect of their team play. The now 6 – 4 Eagles’ have faltered since, losing their last two games to North Polk and Norwalk, and will next play Little Hawkeye Conference opponent Knoxville at home on Friday.
