Statesmen down Lewis & Clark, 87-74
It took longer to get going than they wanted, but once Lincoln Trail College's men's basketball team got started, there was no stopping them.

The Statesmen shook off a sluggish start by putting together a huge run late in the first half and rolled to an 87-74 win over Lewis & Clark Community College to close out the regular season Wednesday night.

The two teams traded baskets during the opening minutes, but a 15-6 run by Lewis & Clark - including seven in a row at the end - gave the Trailblazers a 22-11 lead with 10:57 remaining.

After a time-out, LTC brought their starters back in that had been subbed out during a rough stretch minutes earlier. The starters responded once they got back in the game, as the Statesmen put together a 31-6 run over the next 10 minutes that turned the tide in their favor for good.

"We talked before the game about being active defensively, being active with our hands and feet, communicating and rebounding and we weren't doing that early on," LTC head coach Luke Stuckey said. "We subbed in five new guys and once the starters went back in, they got the point and we did a great job defensively and offensively from that point on."

Days might be numbered for presses, but not for newspapers
Jim Nowlan and I go back a long way, and I can't think of anyone I know who I respect more. That being said, I have a much less dystopian view of the future of newspapers, and particularly community journalism, than the one Jim shared his piece, "Stop the hand-wringing over decline of newspapers," a couple weeks ago. We are a much better product than we give ourselves credit for, and for those committed to community journalism, I believe we have a much brighter future than what some might think.
