First year Pella’s boys basketball coach Derek Schulte knows that his team has work to do on both offense and defense if they’re going to get where they want to be by the end of the season.

He says that they’re spending time over the holiday break working on some specific areas for improvement.

“Offensively, we’ve got to continue to improve our half-court offense. Defensively, I really think it comes down to what we would call shell principles – being able to contain penetration, help and recover without giving up easy opportunities, and then doing a better job of limiting top players on other teams.”

The Little Dutch are 6-2 so far this season and head to Newton to resume play one week from tonight.
