It can be quite challenging defending the Alleman girls' basketball team.

In Game 2 of the Dearrel Bates Mississippi River Shootout at Black Hawk College, the Pioneers placed four in double figures in rolling to a 64-33 victory over Davenport West.

"Everybody needs to be a threat on offense for us," said Alleman coach Jay Hatch. "I didn't see anyone not shoot when they were open and we have to be able to do that."

Thus, the Pioneers (10-8) were led in scoring by Anne Bohnert with 19 points, and backed by point guard Isabelle Anderson with 15, and reserves Daria Guzzo and Maddie McGuire with 13 and 11, respectively.

Not in double figures, nor even in the scoring column was center Erin Morrisey, who two days earlier scored a career-high 29 points in a Western Big 6 Conference loss at Galesburg.

Yes, the Pioneers can present those kinds of problems to defenders.

Alleman shot 50 percent from the field (23 of 46), and 88 percent (15 of 17) from the line. That accuracy was spread out as well as the scoring. Anderson was 5 of 6 and 5 of 5, respectively. Bohnert was 7 of 11 and 4 of 5. McGuire was 5 of 8 and hit her only free throw. Guzzo was 4 of 7 and 5 of 6.

For McGuire it was her second straight game of double-figures off the bench.

"Maddie can shoot the ball, no question," said Hatch. "To do that, she needs to be getting the ball in position to get that shot, and we did that well."

West (3-7) had two in double-figure scoring – Adaira Madden with 12 and Brooke Garnica with 10. Madden's effort was boosted by an 8-of-10 performance from the free-throw line. Otherwise, West was held to just 30 field goal attempts, hitting nine.

West came into the Shootout as just one of two Iowa teams with a winning Shootout record, falling, however, to 4-4 with the loss.

"I'm quite certain none of our girls knew that," said Hatch. "I knew it because I saw it in the paper, but we didn't share that with the girls."

Alleman is now 3-1 in the Shootout, winning its third straight. Alleman has faced four different Iowa teams in its Shootout ventures.
