[November 20, 2008]  INA -- The Lincoln College men's basketball team lost to Rend Lake Community College 72-59 Wednesday evening. The road loss puts the Lynx's record back to 4-4 on the season.

DonutsLincoln coach's commentary:

"We were down by four points with three minutes left to play and couldn't put the ball in the basket. We did not shoot the ball well tonight and that was the game. When you shoot 25 percent from the floor in the second half, you are not going to beat many teams, and that was the story tonight.

"It is hard to find bright spots when you lose, but Colby Johnson did well for us tonight, defensively and offensively. He held the Moore kid to 13 points, who lit us up the first time we played them for 27; however, Gamber came through big for them tonight with 27 points.

"You have to give Rend Lake credit. They hit 15 out of 17 free throws the last three minutes of the game to secure the win."
