    CANNELTON—Cannelton improved its play in most facets of the game but couldn’t overcome its cold shooting in a 53-39 boys basketball loss to Shoals Saturday.
    “Our biggest problem is hitting shots,” said Cannelton Coach Michael Snyder. “We probably hit 30 percent from the field.
    “Our kids’ biggest problem as far as shooting goes is predicated on confidence. I don’t think we took a bunch of bad shots - we just didn’t make them.”
