Defending Class 3A boys’ basketball champion Oskaloosa looks to return to State as they play Pella Monday night (3/2) in Knoxville for the Substate 6 title. Indians Coach Ryan Parker says his team will rely on seven foot center Xavier Foster.
“If you look at us right now, we’re only as good as he is. That’s hard to say sometimes, but when he demands double teams and stuff like that, it allows everybody else to get open looks. And when he’s on, like he was the other night against Bondurant-Farrar, it just makes it that much easier for us.”
Foster scored 35 points in last Thursday’s (2/27) 70-58 win over Bondurant-Farrar.
Pella has defeated Oskaloosa twice during the regular season. You can hear Oskaloosa and Pella Monday night on KBOE-FM with coverage at 6:45 and the tipoff at 7.
