Allen finished with two tackles for losses of seven yards.
Allen led the Blue Devils to a 56-55 last-second triumph over Lutheran North in the Class 3 title basketball game after his team trailed by 19 points in the first half and was down 32-16 at halftime. Allen scored 15 of his 25 points in the second half, including a game-winning layup with four seconds remaining in the game to give Maplewood-Richmond Heights its first lead of the game.
