From the opening bucket, the home team dominated the visitors with
defensive intensity that produced turnover after turnover, allowing
the Red Lions to stride out to a 53-26 lead at the half.
The second half saw the Scarlet Hawks surge back from the
27-point deficit and close it to 60-47 after the first six minutes
of play. This 13-point margin would hold through the rest of the
game as both teams paced each other in scoring, fouls and turnovers.
Tuesday's game saw every LCU player score at least two points.
The deluge of scoring was led by senior forward David Graves
(Eustace, Texas/Eustace High) with 16 points, followed by freshman
forward Josiah Gordon (Springfield/Lanphier High) with 14 and senior
guard Blake Saathoff (Bruce, S.D./Estelline High) with 13.
