Statesmen fall at Vincennes, 85-74
JOSH BROWN
Sports Editor

The time above the .500 mark was short-lived for Lincoln Trail College's men's basketball team.

Although the margin was closer, the outcome was still the same for the Statesmen, as they dropped an 85-74 decision at No. 6-ranked Vincennes (Ind.) University Wednesday in non-conference play.

Lincoln Trail previously lost to Vincennes 83-65 on Jan. 9 in Robinson, giving the Trailblazers a sweep of the season series following Wednesday night's win.

The Statesmen stayed close to Vincennes throughout most of the contest, but never held a lead. Vincennes opened the game with a 10-5 run, then followed a little bit later with a 15-0 spree that pushed the margin to 26-7 just past the midway point of the first half. Lincoln Trail didn't go away, as they outscored Vincennes 25-17 the rest of the half to pull within 43-32 at halftime.

Lincoln Trail continued to claw their way back in the second half. After falling behind 50-34 early, the Statesmen put together a 16-1 run, with eight of those points coming from Dennis Hightower, to close the gap to 51-50 with 11:35 remaining. The Statesmen could not get all the way over the hump though, as Vincennes responded with a 10-3 burst to stretch their lead to 61-53, but an 8-2 spurt by LTC closed the gap to 63-61 with 7:18 left. That was as close as the Statesmen would get the rest of the way, as Vincennes outscored LTC 22-13 over the final seven minutes to secure the win.

Statistically, Lincoln Trail held the advantage in several categories, but it came down to Vincennes simply hitting more shots. The Statesmen shot 56 percent from the floor (27-48), including 23-36 from two-point range (64 percent) and 4-12 from three-point range, but they were just 16-28 from the free throw line (57 percent). Vincennes made 30-57 field goal attempts (53 percent), which included a 26-45 performance from inside the arc (58 percent) and 4-12 from long distance (33 percent). The Trailblazers were also 21-28 at the free throw line (75 percent).

The Statesmen also committed less turnovers than Vincennes (16-21), but Vincennes held a 34-25 rebounding edge, with 11 of those coming on the offensive end.

Hightower led LTC with 31 points, including 19 in the second half, along with six rebounds and three assists, while Jake Newton posted 11 points, seven rebounds and two steals. Nick Painter totaled eight points, two assists, one rebound and one steal, Jesse Tesmer contributed seven points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one blocked shot, Adam Hendrix netted six points and three rebounds, Caleb Begle tossed in five points, Daryll Walker added three points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal and Ron Dietz had three points, one rebound, one steal and one blocked shot.

Four players reached double figures for Vincennes, led by Monte Burney with 21 points and five rebounds. Tyran de Lattibeaudiere posted 14 points, seven rebounds and one blocked shot, Deshawn Delaney netted 13 points, eight rebounds and one blocked shot and Devin Foster added 11 points and seven rebounds.
