MT. VERNON —
The Rams struggled shooting from 3-point range throughout the game, missing every attempt they took.
“We don’t have the team to not be able to finish and to not hit perimeter shots and still win basketball games,” Gamber said.
Gamber said he entered the season thinking perimeter shooting was a strength for his team.
“We’ve not hit anything in two games now,” Gamber said. “I hope that we’re a little maybe (nervous).
“Shooting is one of those things that it seems like it’s all about confidence. When you’re not making any, it’s hard to gain confidence.”
Marion’s Brant Hill led all scorers with 14 points. Jawan Tucker added 13.
Mt. Vernon is 1-1 this season and plays Salem at 8 p.m. tonight. The Wildcats enter the game after losing to Marion and Collinsville to start the tournament.
