The 2013 part of the schedule was up-and-down for Pella Christian’s boys’ basketball team. Highs included a close win over Washington and a one-point victory against Newton where the Eagles scored 73 points. Some lows, though, have been offensively in their losses, where the Eagles have averaged roughly 47 points per game. Though the offense has been there, Coach Larry Hessing says he wants to see a more all-around defensive effort from his guys in 2014. Hessing adds that he hopes by the time the district tournaments start up in February his guys are ready to go and are playing their best basketball.
