An increasingly healthy Pella Christian girls basketball team is hoping to make noise in the Class 2A regional playoffs as they start postseason play.

The Eagles host East Marshall, who defeated Belle Plaine Saturday night 39-34. Pella Christian is back to full strength in their lineup, with the eight players that started the season in the main rotation back and playing regular minutes. Assistant Coach Craig Juffer says the biggest key is to find a rhythm with the group offensively in order to play their best basketball on a consistent basis.

Pella Christian and East Marshall begin action at 7 p.m. tonight, with coverage beginning at 6:30 on 92.1 KRLS.
