Struggling against a 1-2-2 defense from Pella, the Grinnell JV boys rallied in the 4th quarter to close the gap to 32-30 with 4 minutes. 4 turnovers in 5 possessions allowed Pella to maintain their lead and finish the game at the FT line 44-38.

“It’s been a couple crazy weeks for all teams trying to practice, play games, maintain normal school days”, said Coach Baker. “We rebounded very strong as a team and then dropped some outside shots and that allowed us to press a little bit. Pressing forces us to play a bit harder and then we play better.”

The Tiger JV will play in front of the Varsity the final 4 games: Saturday at Knoxville, Monday at Osky, Thurs at Mt. Vernon, Fri v. Newton at Grinnell College.
