By the end of the night you could see that IPFW's junior outside hitter Darryl Shank was getting bone weary.
Kills attempts that he put away earlier were flying wide, and didn't have the steam that they once had.
Even though he finished with an astounding 35 kills, Shank's Mastodons still wound up losing 3-2 to Lewis on Friday at the Gates Center.
It's kind of like having a stud in basketball, without much offensive help around him.
Oliver Kook had a season-best 15 kills, but IPFW needs to find some consistent offense before they even make a run at being competitive in the MIVA this season.
Eventually, teams will try to limit Shank's offense. He had 73 attempts - 42 more than Kook.
Something has to change - or somebody has to help.
