[NOV. 25, 2003]  SPRINGFIELD -- The Lincoln Christian men's basketball team defeated Robert Morris-Springfield 84-83. It was a seesaw battle the whole game, with the largest scoring margin being seven points. LCC took the final lead with 2:00 left on the clock and never looked back.

"I thought we showed a lot of maturity for a young team. It shows that we've taken a step towards being a good team," commented LCC coach Searby. "We really stepped up and battled the last 10 minutes, we beat them to loose balls, we got big rebounds, and we had several guys step up and hit big shots."

The Preachers hit for 52 percent from the field and 55 percent from the 3-point line. Despite giving up points on offensive boards, LCC still held RMC to just 45 percent from the field.

Brian Dunaway led the team in scoring with 25 points. Caleb Edson added 21 points, hitting seven of 10 field goals and three of four 3-point shots.
