The Lincoln eighth grade boys basketball team traveled to Culver on Thursday night and defeated the Cavaliers 58-24.
The Red Storm (15-2) was too much for the Cavaliers too handle, as they amassed 51 points through three quarters and limited the Cavaliers to 13.

Men’s college basketball
Chargers can’t complete comeback
The Ancilla College men’s basketball team saw its comeback bid fall short in a 76-72 loss to MCCAA Western Conference rival Lansing Community College on Wednesday at the LifePlex in Plymouth.
The Chargers (6-7, 0-3 MCCAA Western) cut a nine-point halftime deficit to two with 1:51 remaining in the game. However, two consecutive possessions to tie or take the lead came up empty, and two free throws with 1.3 seconds remaining by Lansing’s Cameron Sanchez sealed Ancilla’s fate.
Andre Hampton led Ancilla with 18 points while Jordan Coe finished with 17, including Ancilla’s last nine points of the game. Marc Constable added 16 points.
Ancilla found itself shorthanded with only eight players dressed for Wednesday’s game. Understandably, the offense struggled to find a consistent rhythm.
The Chargers managed just nine assists on the night while committing 17 turnovers.
Ancilla will resume play on Friday when they travel to Benton Harbor, Mich., to play MCCAA Western Conference rival Lake Michigan College. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EDT.
Women’s college basketball
Lady Chargers narrowly miss 1st win
The Ancilla College women’s basketball team let a double digit lead slip away in a 67-65 loss to MCCAA Western Conference rival Lansing Community College.
The Lady Chargers (0-12, 0-3 MCCAA Western) led by 11 midway through the second half but were unable to capitalize on the advantage.
Ancilla’s Brittany Cook had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but her running effort from half court caromed off the backboard and rim, sending the Lady Chargers to their 12th loss of the year.
Cook finished with 21 points on the night while Natasha Ware and Katrina Vannoy each finished with double-doubles in scoring and rebounds. Ware contributed 14 points and 12 rebounds while Vannoy added 10 points and 12 rebounds.
Rebecca Bunkowfst added 12 points for Ancilla.
Beason stressed an overreliance on the three-point shot and the inability to defend the paint as primary factors in her team’s loss.
The Lady Chargers will resume MCCAA Western Conference play on Friday when they travel to Benton Harbor, Mich., to play NJCAA No. 17 Lake Michigan College. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. EDT.
