Coming into the game, LCU was outsized at every position, with
Grace Bible College boasting a starting lineup of four players
at 6-foot 5 or above. LCU does not start anyone above 6-foot-3.
That size differential came into advantage for the Grace Tigers,
as they outrebounded the Red Lions 35-24. Grace also beat LCU
with points in the paint, scoring 30 points to LCU's 20.
LCU was led on the offensive end by Cremeens, who scored 26
points on 7-of-19 shooting. Junior captain and guard Christian
Lowery (Sadorus, Arthur Christian), helped Cremeens lead the
attack with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting, while adding five
assists and two steals.
Grace Bible College was led by their 6-foot-7 post, BJ VanLoo
(Hudsonville, Mich., Hudsonville High), who scored 16 points on
7-of-19 shooting. Grace had a large advantage from the
free-throw line throughout the game, going 21 of 38 from the
line, while LCU was only 9 of 15 from the line. GBC had 12 of 13
players in the scoring column.
The Red Lions are off for a week before they get back into
action when they host the Soldiers of St. Louis Christian
College on Monday at 7 p.m. in Gatson Arena in the Laughlin
Center on the LCU campus.
