[NOV. 24, 2003]  The Lincoln Christian men's basketball team picked up their first home victory of the season Saturday afternoon with an 82-41 win versus Grace University of Omaha, Neb.

 LCC shot a blazing 55 percent from the field, but the Royals kept it close by converting second-chance points and scoring off turnovers. In the second half, the home squad came out and forced turnovers with a high-tempo defense and were able to push a 21-point lead

"This is a win that our team needed after dropping two in a row," Lincoln coach Searby commented.

"I thought this is the best all-around game that we have had so far," he added. "Brian had a spectacular game, but it's because he got other players involved."

The Preachers were led statistically by Brian Dunaway's 30 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists.

Caleb Edson added 29 points.

"I think this was a breakout game for Caleb," Searby said. "He has been showing signs of being able to do what he did tonight."

Travis Chase had a double-double once again, with 10 points and 13 boards. Tim Schultz chipped in 10 on 5-of-7 from the field.

The LCC men moved their record to 4-2. They play tonight (Monday) at 7:30 at Robert Morris in Springfield.
