[February 16, 2009]  SPRINGFIELD -- Lincoln College defeated Lincoln Land 69-63 Saturday afternoon. The Lynx move to 18-7 overall and 10-1 in the conference.

Coach Whiteman wraps up the game:

"I thought our guys did a great job the last few minutes of the game to hold off Lincoln Land. We were winning at the half 40-30.

"We shot 20-26 from the free-throw line and 7-10 from 3-point line. Chris Ware was 8-8 from (the) line and finished with 10 rebounds and 12 points. Cortez Augusta made a big play late in the game to put us up five when he penetrated and dished off to Ware.

"Darius Adams led all scorers with 25 points and had a big layup and was fouled."

The Lynx next play in Cuba versus Spoon River on Wednesday.
