There’s something to be said about being able to win a game by double digits, never really being threatened in the second half, and still not being particularly happy about it.

Such is the case for Allen Community College’s men, who opened the Region VI playoffs Monday with an 86-73 win over visiting Labette.

But the Cardinals gave Jayhawk Conference champion Allen fits, and seemed to answer every time the Red Devils threatened to blow the game open.
