The Lincoln Christian University
men's basketball team hosted Emmaus Bible College on Saturday
afternoon at LCU's Laughlin Center. Just like in their November
matchup, when LCU (11-14) beat Emmaus 89-61, LCU dominated once
again, winning 74-37.
LCU started out hot, putting on a run by going up 15-3 to start the
game. Emmaus was able to cut the lead to eight points before LCU
went on another run and extended the lead, going into halftime ahead
The second half was more of the same as LCU doubled Emmaus
in total offensive output on the game, winning by 37 points, thanks
in large part to a stellar second-half performance by freshman guard
AJ Kuhn (New Carlisle, Ind., Community Baptist Christian) as he
scored all 14 of his points in the half.
LCU was able to shoot 41 percent from the floor while holding
Emmaus to 28 percent shooting from the floor. LCU also dominated the
rebounding battle 40-25. Emmaus was forced into making 26 turnovers
on the game.
For LCU, in his last game playing at home, senior guard Brady
Cremeens (Hopedale, Olympia High) once again led his team, this time
with 27 points on 9-of-20 shooting. Kuhn chipped in with 14 points
on 6-of-7 shooting. Senior forward Nick Radcliffe (Fox Lake, Grant
Community), getting his first start of the season, had eight points
on 3-of-7 shooting.

For Emmaus, freshman guard Caleb Ruter (Hanover, Minn.) led
the team with 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting. The second-leading
scorer for Emmaus was Simeon Beil (Bradford, R.I.), who was held
to six points on 3-of-11 shooting.
LCU will now travel to Grace Bible College in Grand Rapids,
Mich., where they will compete in the NCCAA II Mid-West Regional
Tournament beginning Thursday.
