While the home team chased the game for the entire 40 minutes and
was down by 19 points at halftime, they made the best of the second
half and closed the gap to just three points in the closing minute.
It would not be enough, however, as the Red Lions could not earn the
last few points to take the lead, and the LCU men dropped their 12th
game of the year, 76-71.
Sophomore forward Raymond Shegog (Sun River Terrace/Lincoln
