Keith Allen delivered those sad 11 words shortly after the Llano basketball Yellow Jackets had been walloped by Salado 73-41. Sort of gives away the ending rather quickly, but the head coach has consistently shown candor not always seen and heard from his colleagues. The game on the first night in February contained about as much suspense as the chance residents in Central Texas that even ...
