[October 21, 2009]  The Lincoln College men's basketball team will host "Meet the Lynx Night" on Friday at 8. The night will be full of excitement with a 3-point shooting contest, short scrimmage and a dunk contest. This will be a great opportunity to meet the new members of the team in a family fun environment.

The Lynx are coming off a third-place place finish in the NJCAA national tournament last season with a record of 27-10.

Admission to the event will be one bottle of a sports drink.

Some of the players on this year's team:

Chris Ware -- 6-foot-6 sophomore from Hammond, Ind. Returning starter, all-conference, all-region. Being recruited by Idaho State, where the head coach is former Lynx head coach Joe O'Brien.

Kenyon Smith -- 5-foot-11 freshman from Simeon, Ill. Signed with Illinois State last fall. Played high school basketball with Derek Rose.


Louie Schonauer -- 6-foot-3 freshman from Lincoln. Former Lincoln High School standout who brings outside shooting to a young team.

Kiel Turpin -- 6-foot-10 freshman from Normal West. Size, size, size. Has potential to be one of the best players in the league as he develops.

Charles Woodson -- 6-foot-1 freshman from Carbondale. One of the top players on his high school team, which made it to the Sweet 16 last year.
