[December 08, 2008]  OLNEY -- The Lincoln College men's basketball team won 105-91 Saturday night versus Clark State at the Olney Classic.

Lincoln coach Kirk Whiteman assessed the game:

Restaurant"We had a couple breakout performances offensively this game, with Bryce Davis scoring 29 points and hauling down 16 rebounds, Don Gavin with 28 points and seven rebounds. Our guards did a great job of finding the open man against their zone.

"However, their two guards lit us up for 59 points on 10-of-20 from the 3-point line. This is the second game in a row in which their two guards accounted for more than half of the team's points.

"We are going to have to find some toughness and sit down and guard people on the perimeter. With our first conference game this Saturday, I hope our guys find a sense of urgency on the defensive end."

Lincoln's record is now 7-6.

The Lynx's next game, their first conference game, is against Lincoln Land at home on Saturday.
