Last pass fails and Shock falls


There’s a lot of talk about the Shock as the defending af2 champions. But it’s just that, talk.

Honestly, there isn’t a lot of resemblance between the 2007 Shock team and the 2006 version. The coaching staff is different and so are most of the players.

And right now so is the record. This version of the Shock dropped to 1-2 after the 63-56 loss to the expansion Fort Wayne (Ind.) Fusion on Sunday.

The Shock return to the Arena on Saturday night when they host Lubbock (5 p.m.; KHQ-6).

• Here are the game stories from the Fort Wayne Papers. The two share a website. This is the Journal Gazette story and this is the News-Sentinel piece.
