Washington comes up short at Keokuk
KEOKUK — Washington nearly rallied back from a double-digit deficit on Friday night at Keokuk, but the Demons came up short in a 44-41 loss to the Chiefs.
“We made it interesting down the stretch,” Washington head coach Bryce Smeins said.
Washington (1-5, 0-2 Southeast Conference) had a tough game offensively, shooting just 34 percent from the field and turning the ball over 19 times.
“I thought our defense played pretty well to hold them to 44 points,” Smeins said. “It was probably their season low. We just couldn’t do anything on the offensive end.”
Senior Kyle Roder scored 16 points to lead the Demons. Senior Justin Hoffman added 13 points and six rebounds.
