A valiant effort for three quarters was not enough to save  Allen Community College from division leader Butler. The Lady Devils simply ran out of steam in the final quarter, being outscored by nine and losing 72-56. 

“A 16-point game is not indicative of how that game felt. It was eight points the whole way, and a three-point game at halftime,” ACC head coach Rachel Janzen said. “We fought our tails off and I’m so proud of them. I mean they are the top team in the conference, they are very good.”

Butler entered Saturday’s contest atop the Jayhawk East with a 12-4 record in conference play. Meanwhile, the Lady Devils sat bottom of the division at 2-13. Earlier in the season Butler topped ACC 92-49.
