[January 05, 2013]  KANSAS, Okla. -- On Thursday afternoon, the Lincoln Christian University men's basketball team played in their second game of three for the week at the Cookson Hills Classic in Kansas, Okla. Responding from their tough loss Wednesday, the LCU Red Lions led the entire game on Thursday, beating Nebraska Christian College 72-53.

LCU (4-9) came out slowly on offense for the second straight game, but behind the shooting of senior shooting guard Brady Cremeens (Hopedale, Olympia High), LCU's offense picked up, and they pulled away from NCC (4-10) to grab an 11-point lead, going into halftime with a score of 36-25.

In the second half, it was much of the same from both teams, as LCU came out and led the entire half, pushing their lead to as many as 26 points.

LCU led the way in many statistical categories for the game, but the most prominent was their 61-31 advantage on rebounding over NCC.

LCU was led in scoring by Cremeens, who had 30 points off 11-of-25 shooting. Sophomore forward David Graves (Eustace, Texas, Eustace High) added a double-double with his 13 points and 11 rebounds, while sophomore forward Gabe Langseth (Stewartville, Minn., Stewartville High) also had a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Nebraska Christian was led in scoring by guard Henry Efamba, who had 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting.
