Mt. Vernon finished the game 17 of 44 from the field. Gamber said he was unhappy with his team's shot timing in the half-court offense.
“Every time we ran a set we shot the ball on the first option whether it was there whether it wasn't there,” Gamber said. “That's what I told our guys. Good defense teams like Carbondale like Centralia like Cahokia you cannot get a good look off of one pass.”
Mt. Vernon is 10-4 overall this season and 1-3 in South Seven Conference action. The Rams face Northwest Academy at 6 p.m. tonight.
