The Royals' intensity was immediate and unrelenting, but LCU
made great efforts defensively and kept the game within reach
throughout. Going into the locker room at halftime, Lincoln
Christian trailed 40-30. The Red Lions came out to start the
second half with purpose and drive, closing the gap to within
three points twice, but failing to match Grace's intensity or
control of the boards. LCU had only 20 rebounds, their lowest
season total to date.
LCU senior David Graves (Eustace,
Texas/Eustace High) led his teammates in scoring for the third
straight game with 15 points, followed by freshman Jimmy Smylie
(Springfield/Calvary Academy) with 12.
The Red Lions will take the holidays off and return to play
in January when they travel to Kansas, Okla., to compete in the
Cookson Hills Classic.
