[January 25, 2010]  In their second game at the new Lincoln Center, the Lynx lost by four points to Lewis & Clark on Saturday afternoon.

"This was a tale of two halves," said Lincoln coach Kirk Whiteman. "Lewis & Clark was on fire in the first half, going 7-9 from the 3-point line. The way they shot it, I expected to be down by a couple points. However, 10 turnovers by us led to 12 points of layups by them. Lincoln went in at halftime down 49-31.

"The second half was a different story. By picking up the defensive intensity, we were able to cut the lead to eight points with 10 minutes to play. Marius Sumrell did a great job defensively to create some transition baskets for us and, Chris Ware did a much better job of being active offensively.

"We were down by two points with three minutes to play, but we gave up three offense rebounds on one position to go back down four points and went down 10 points with a minute and a half. We showed some real guts to battle back, but itís disappointing that we put ourself in that position. We had our chances with a missed 3-pointer by Schonauer with eight seconds left, and they got the rebound to seal the victory with a final score of 82-78."

Chris Ware had 18 points, Marius Sumrell 16 points, Kenyon Smith and Kiel Turpin 13 points each, followed by Louie Schanour by 10 points.
