Poor defense carries Chucks toward 62-55 loss

January 5, 2011

INDIANA — Two Chucks scored 20-plus points, but the Punxsy boys' basketball team didn't play enough defense while losing to one-win Indiana Wednesday night, 62-55.

Experience was in Punxsy's favor, as all nine of the Chucks (3-4) who played are seniors or juniors. Indiana (2-9), meanwhile, received 18 of its season-high 62 points from three freshmen.

Punxsy first-year head coach Dirk Neal, who has stressed a team that defends with intensity and enthusiasm since he took the job, wasn't the least bit pleased with the way his defense performed Wednesday.
