[January 29, 2013]  The Lincoln Christian University men's basketball team showed up at the gym on Saturday afternoon ready to take on their NCAA III opponent, Principia College. LCU (9-12) controlled the game from the beginning to the end as they ran away with the score, winning 79-58.

LCU jumped out to an early lead in the first half, leading by six points, but Principia (0-18) showed some fight as they fought back to close the gap. However, from eight minutes left in the first half through the rest of the game, LCU coasted to an easy double-digit win. LCU's largest lead of the day came in the second half, when they jumped out to a 27-point lead over the winless Panthers of Principia. LCU dominated from a statistical standpoint in several areas. They won the rebounding battle 42-28 while also grabbing 18 offensive rebounds. LCU also forced Principia into making 17 turnovers.

LCU was led in scoring, once again, by senior shooting guard Brady Cremeens (Hopedale, Olympia High), as he put up 17 points on 5-of-16 shooting. Junior forward Raymond Shegogg (Sun River Terrace, Lincoln College) chipped in 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go along with his 10 rebounds, eight of those being on the offensive glass.

Principia was led in scoring by junior forward Kenny Sydness (Wellesley Hills, Mass., Wellesley High), who was the game's leading scorer, with 25 points on 11-of-20 shooting, while also grabbing 11 rebounds to give him the double-double. Principia's junior guard Matt Jones (Loveland, Colo., The Upper School) was also able to chip in 11 points.
