Only seven points were scored in the first five minutes during a
vigorous back-and-forth, ending with MCC leading 4-3. Both teams
took turns with the lead in the first half, though the greatest
lead of either team was only four points. LCU trailed at the
half by a mere three points, 30-33.
For the second game in a row, LCU senior guard Blake Saathoff
(Bruce, S.D./Estelline High) led all scorers with 23 points,
aided by senior forward David Graves (Eustace, Texas/Eustace
High), who contributed 11 points. Saathoff and Graves each
managed five rebounds, but the team had a season low of only six
offensive rebounds on the day.
The Red Lions had a game against Johnson University at the
Cookson Hills Classic on Saturday before returning home.
