LC Men Drop Season Finale at Parkland

March 10, 2013

Champaign, IL – The Lincoln College Men’s basketball team traveled to Parkland College for their final regular season game this past Saturday.  The Lynx jumped out to an early 10 point lead in the first half, led by some great early effort by Andrew Jordan and Avery Perry.  Parkland stormed back to cut the Lynx lead to 31-28 at the half.  The second half was a back and forth battle between both teams. Parkland ousted Lincoln in the second half by a score of 61-58.  The Lynx were led by JoVaughn Gaines and Aaron Simpson with 13 points each, while Andrew Jordan and Avery Perry chipped in 12 and 10 respectively. 

The Lynx look to get things turned back around heading into the Region 24 tournament starting on Friday, March 8th.  They will be playing at John Wood (Quincy, IL) against rival Illinois Central College.  The winner of that game moves on to play #1 seed Rend Lake.
