LTC drops pair at Olney Central
JOSH BROWN
Sports Editor

Going on the road in conference play is never easy and Lincoln Trail College's basketball teams found that out again Wednesday night, as both the men's and women's teams dropped road contests at Olney Central College in Great Rivers Athletic Conference play.

In the women's game, LTC dropped a back-and-forth contest, 71-65.

The Lady Statesmen held an 18-17 edge after one quarter and still led 33-32 at halftime. However, OCC outscored LTC 24-14 in the third quarter to take a 56-47 lead. Lincoln Trail was able to outscore OCC 18-15 in the fourth quarter, but still fell a bit short.

Poor shooting proved costly for the Lady Statesmen, as they hit just 24-79 field goal attempts (30 percent), including 16-58 from two-point range (28 percent) and 8-21 from three-point range (38 percent), while also going 9-18 at the free throw line (50 percent). Olney Central was just a tick better from the field, making 23-68 shots (34 percent), which included 17-47 from inside the arc (36 percent) and 6-21 from long distance (29 percent), but OCC made up for it at the free throw line by hitting 19-26 attempts (73 percent).

Jaylynn Brown led LTC with 29 points, 10 rebounds, four steals, three blocked shots and two assists, but was the only LTC player in double figures. Hannah Boykin totaled eight points, four rebounds, one steal, one assist and one blocked shot, Alaysia Douglas posted six points, four rebounds, three steals, one assist and one blocked shot, Amber Hixon contributed five points, four rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot, SyAnn Holmes collected four points, six rebounds, one steal and one assist, Jazmyn Ingersoll netted four points and three rebounds, Kelsey Mitchell recorded three points, three rebounds and two blocked shots, Madison Beck chipped in three points and two rebounds, Paiton Mangrum registered two points, two rebounds and two assists and Alexis True added one point.

Kyla Reid led OCC with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two blocked shots and one steal, while Kimberlyn Weaver posted 11 points, nine rebounds and one assist and Jarissa Page netted 10 points, three rebounds two steals and one assist.

Meanwhile, late-season struggles continued for the LTC men's team, as the Statesmen dropped their fifth straight game after falling at OCC, 90-75.

Lincoln Trail found themselves down 42-34 at halftime and saw that deficit more than double midway through the second half on their way to being outscored 48-41 over the final 20 minutes to reach the final margin.

The Statesmen actually made one more field goal that Olney Central, but OCC more than doubled up LTC from long distance. Olney Central knocked down 15 three-pointers to just seven for LTC, giving OCC a 45-21 advantage from beyond the arc. OCC also made 13-18 free throws (72 percent), while LTC only hit 4-8 foul shots (50 percent).

Lamar Lillard led a balanced scoring attack with 12 points, while Dante Combs posted 11. Tad Kapek and Meeko Bond scored 10 points apiece, Ahmad Price netted nine, Alex Heath contributed eight, J.J. Reed added seven and Tobias Thompson and Eric Moenkhaus each had four.

Jalen Moore led five players in double figures for OCC with 26 points, while Elijah Farr scored 13 and Cobie Montgomery, Nick Walker and J.J. Kalakon each netted 12.
