[December 14, 2012]  NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Lincoln Christian University men's basketball team traveled to Notre Dame, Ind., on Wednesday to take on the Saints of Holy Cross College. Despite 23 point from LCU senior shooting guard Brady Cremeens (Hopedale, Olympia High), Holy Cross was able to pull away from the Red Lions and ran away with an 87-58 win.

LCU (3-8) started out slow, with HCC (8-5) holding the Red Lions to four points for the first six minutes of the game, while HCC increased their initial lead to 10 points. The Red Lions fought back with intensity on the defensive end as they began closing the gap and eventually cut the score to 20-18. However, they could never retain the lead as HCC went into halftime with a 43-25 lead.

HCC came out in the second half and continued the relentless pressure on the Red Lions, pulling further away. HCC outrebounded LCU 55-28. Nineteen of those 55 were offensive rebounds, in which they turned more than half the rebounds into second-chance points.

LCU was once again led by Cremeens, as he scored his 23 points on 8-of-22 shooting. Junior guard Christian Lowery (Sadorus, Arthur Christian) filled up the stat sheet as he was 3 of 5 from the floor and 4 of 6 from the line to give him 11 points, along with his seven rebounds and six assists. HCC was led by junior forward Brandon Evans (Grand Rapids, Mich.), as he put up 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting, while also adding nine rebounds. Junior forward Parker Dominguez (Santa Clarita, Calif.) recorded the game's only double-double with 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting and added 12 rebounds.

The LCU Red Lions are off for Christmas break for the rest of December. They will resume their games as they travel to Kansas, Okla., for the Cookson Hills Classic on Jan. 2, 3 and 4. They will play Manhattan Christian College, Nebraska Christian College and Ozark Christian College. LCU returns home for their first home game of the second semester on Jan. 10, when they will take on Central Christian College of the Bible (2-9) at 6 p.m.
