Lynx coach Kirk Whiteman was pleased with his team's performance.
"Our guys did a great job in the second half of holding on to the
ball, and we handled their pressure much better," Whiteman said. "We
battled in the first half and had some nice runs to go up six to
eight points, but Shawnee did a good job of putting pressure on us
and turning us over, 12 times, which created some easy transition
for them. We were able to score the last basket of the half to go in
at the half 43-37.
"The story tonight was our guards' ability to get the ball
inside. Chris Ware led all scorers with 32 points and 15 rebounds.
Louie Schonauer had 14 points with four 3s, Kenyon Smith 13 and
Kyler Works 11 points. DeMarius Sumrell did a great job for us again
defensively, scoring eight points."
Lincoln moves to 21-6 (11-2 in conference) with the win at
Shawnee. Shawnee drops to 15-9 (7-7).
Lincoln plays its last home game on Saturday at 3 p.m. versus
Lincoln Land, and the sophomores will be honored.
