Two weeks ago, the Allen Community College Red Devils appeared invincible. An 11-game winning streak fueled a 7-0 start in the Jayhawk Conference. But now, the Red Devils appear battered and bruised. 

Coffeyville handed ACC its third consecutive loss on Saturday by a score of 90-80. The loss moves the Red Devils back to fourth in the Jayhawk East with a 7-3 record. 

“We lost our toughness on defense,” head coach Andy Shaw said. “During the whole win streak we had toughness on the defensive end, but I think we have lost that over the past couple of games. We are missing that chip on our shoulder and that edge it takes to close out these games.”
