If Nationwide Souljas are a well-oiled scoring machine, then Chris Allen (@xman3hoops) is definitely their engine. A 6’3″ guard with a smoothly subtle game, Allen can get a bucket from anywhere – hence his nickname, I GET BUCKETS.
Unlike some of the Drew League’s other top scorers, Allen’s not flashy or loud, preferring to let his game do the talking. He’s living proof that it’s the quiet ones you have to watch.
In Nationwide’s last two games, Allen was the Player of the Game and top scorer overall. In the season opener against Hometown Favorites, Allen poured in a cool 26 points, getting to the rim with ease and proving to be unstoppable despite a stiff defensive effort from Hometown. Week 2’s follow-up match against Saints saw him catch fire from three, ending with 32 points and 9 rebounds, just one board short of a double-double. It almost makes you wonder just what he’ll do this week but then again, you should already know. Just check the nickname.
