[January 04, 2014]  KANSAS, Okla. -- The Lincoln Christian University men's basketball team (4-6) met the Dallas Christian College Crusaders (2-12) at the Cookson Hills Classic in Kansas, Okla., on Thursday afternoon. The LCU Red Lions scored a whopping 92 points in this first meeting with the Crusaders this season, but it would not be enough as Dallas reached the century mark to cruise to a 100-92 win.

LCU went into the locker room at the half trailing 14 points, 48-34. Head coach Mac Ingmire motivated his guys to come back stronger in the second half than the first. They outscored Dallas 58-52 in the second half, but it would not be enough to overcome the first-half deficit.

LCU senior guard Blake Saathoff (Bruce, S.D./Estelline High) led all scorers with 30 points. Sophomore Raymond Shegog (Sun River Terrace/Lincoln College) contributed 13 points and led the team in rebounds with 12.

The Red Lions were scheduled to play again in the Cookson Hills Classic on Friday against Manhattan Christian College and on Saturday against Johnson University.
