It is hard to win a game if you give up 49 percent shooting. It makes it nearly impossible when your top two guards combine to shoot just 26 percent.
That is the situation that the Allen Community College men’s basketball team found itself in on Wednesday night against Butler Community College. The Red Devils fell 89-74 to the Grizzlies.
“It’s all on the defensive end right now,” Allen coach Andy Shaw said. “The last couple of games, we’re letting teams shoot 50 percent or right around it and you’re not going to beat anybody in this league when you let them shoot 50 percent… Giving up 50 percent is a recipe to get you beat.”
