Despite a hot start offensively, St. Louis Community College was unable to withstand a 41-point, second-half onslaught by Arkansas State Mid-South on Friday evening in a 74-67 loss to the Greyhounds.
Rigmaiden, who scored 16 points in the first half, was limited to just two in the second. STLCC struggled to work its way to the free-throw line throughout, as they attempted just five attempts from the line all evening.
While the Archers struggled through occasional shooting woes in the second half, head coach Terry Collins placed Friday’s loss primarily on the team’s defensive performance. The Archers allowed Mid-South to shoot 84 percent (16-for-19) from the field in the second half. Guard Tyler Armstrong was the most prevalent culprit, scoring a game-high 31 points for Mid-South on a 12-for-16 performance from the field.
