COFFEYVILLE — Aaron Jackson’s three-pointer at the end of regulation forced overtime Saturday. Allen County Community College’s Red Devil men were going toe-to-toe with host Coffeyville Community College’s Red Ravens.
“We had missed three two-attempt free throws before that and Aaron’s three tied the game at the end,” said Mike Hayes, ACCC head coach. “We got the overtime tip and Erik (Law) hit a three. We were up until there were three minutes left and Aaron fouled out.”
The Red Devil men were low on substitutes. Leading scorer and rebounder Andra Bailey, a sophomore, was not at the game because of personal leave to attend a funeral. Anthony Clagett, sophomore point guard, is still out with an ankle injury. Chris Lee played with an injured hand but could not finish the game.
Coffeyville caught Allen County and notched a 92-88 win. The Red Ravens improved to 6-1 in Jayhawk Eastern Division play and 12-7 overall. Coffeyville is tied for second in the Jayhawk East.
Allen County’s men dropped to 4-3 in conference play and 9-9 overall. The Red Devils host Labette Community College of Parsons (2-5, 7-12) Wednesday.
“It was a great game and our guys played really, really well. We competed well,” Hayes said. “Hitting 13 threes was great but we were disappointed going 15 of 26 from the free-throw line.”
Freshman Dennis Rumph was “a force inside” for the Red Devils plus hit two big threes. Rumph led all scorers with 26 points plus had seven rebounds and three steals.
Erik Law continued to play well and scored 18 points. Keevis Tukes nailed four treys on his way to 16 points and he had seven rebounds. Both are freshmen. Jackson ended up with 15 points.
The Red Devils led 42-41 at halftime and most of the second half. Jackson’s three at the end of regulation tied at 81-81 before Coffeyville outscored Allen County 11-7 in overtime.
Allen County shot 51 percent, 30 of 59, from the field. The Red Ravens shot 47 percent, 36 of 76, from the field and went 13 of 16 from the line. Coffeyville outrebounded Allen County 52 to 27.
