The Allen Men's Basketball team won their 4th straight game Monday night over Pratt CC 122-104. Allen sent off their sophomores with a win in their last home game of the season. Allen got off to a hot start early in the game, as Jordan Marshall connected on back to back 3's. Allen would never lose the lead for the remainder of the game.

Allen connected on 11 of 19 first half three pointers and took a 58-35 lead into the break.
In the second half Allen was able to extend the lead over 30 points, but Pratt did not give up and began slowly chipping away at the Red Devil lead. With roughly 6 minutes left in the game Pratt was able to cut Allen's lead down to just 9 points. Pratt made the game ugly by pressing and forced the Red Devils into some turnovers for easy points. Pratt also fouled quite a bit late in the game forcing Allen to shoot free-throws. Fortunately, Allen was able to hold on to the lead and earn their 4th straight conference victory. This was definitely Allen's best game passing, as the Red Devils finished the game with 27 assists on 41 made field goals. Allen shot 50% from the 3 point line for the game (15-30) and 75.8% from the free throw line (25-33).
