[January 16, 2022] The
Quincy Blue Devils visited Lincoln on Saturday night and they had a
hot night shooting from the outside and quite simply, Lincoln did
not. Shooting over 50 percent from long range, the Blue Devils sank
12 three-pointers versus Lincoln and handed the Railers a 45-25 loss
inside Roy S. Anderson Gymnasium.
Quincy made four 3s in the first quarter to lead the Railers 12-4.
Lincolnís only points in the quarter came on a free throw by Payton Cook
and a three by Elijah Pollice.
Lincoln did not get much more offense in the second quarter. A long
three from Aidan Gowin and a turnaround jumper from Pollice edged the
Railers closer, with the score set at 14-9 nearing the end of the
quarter. But the Blue Devils would close out the second quarter scoring
on a steal by Bradley Loncor, who scored on the layup and made the foul
shot that followed. Quincy held a 17-9 lead at the half.
Jeremiah Talton would guide the Blue Devils offense to a 31-14 third
quarter lead as he scored three 3s, including one at the buzzer. Lincoln
managed just five points again, coming at the hands of Tyler Sasse and
Lincolnís cold shooting poured over into the final quarter and with the
Blue Devils still hitting their shots, they led at one point 41-17.
Sasse added another three down the stretch for Lincoln and then Jaden
Klopp quickly scored a bucket to make the score 41-22 but a comeback was
not meant to be in Lincolnís future. Kiíon Carson came in off the bench
and he would score the last of Lincolnís points on a three but with
Talton himself outscoring Lincoln, the Railers would fall by a final
score of 45-25.
Jeremiah Talton led Quincy with 26 points.
The Blue Devils improve to 16-3 on the season.
Lincoln falls to 14-3 on the season.
The Railers JV team defeated Quincy 43-38. Drew Hayes and Kiíon Carson
each led the Railers with 12 points.
