After scoring the first points of the game, the Red Lions led
for much of the first half, going up by 10 at the 10:00 mark.
The lead wouldn't hold as the Crusaders went on an 18-point run
against an LCU team that scored only six more points in the
latter half of the first period. Having given up their 10-point
lead, the Red Lions went into the locker room at halftime down
seven points, 34-27.
In the second half LCU's offense let the
game get away from them, trailing by as much as 14 points. In
the final minute LCU closed the gap to just five points, 70-65,
but a pair of fouls that sent two Crusaders to the charity
stripe and three missed shots by LCU in the waning seconds set
the final score at 73-65.
LCU's scoring was led by sophomore forward Raymond Shegog
(Sun River Terrace/Lincoln College) with 14 points and 10
rebounds, followed by senior guard Blake Saathoff (Bruce,
S.D./Estelline High) with 13 points and nine rebounds.
Both men's and women's teams will meet Emmaus Bible College
on Saturday, with the women's game at 1 p.m. and the men at 3
p.m. A special ceremony to induct two new members of the LCU
Athletic Hall of Fame will be after the women's game, at
approximately 2:45 p.m.
