[February 18, 2013]  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 34-19.

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.

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.
