Prep boys basketball roundup: Lincoln tripped up 70-51 at Sheb. North

By

Entering Tuesday’s Fox River Classic Conference clash against perennial conference titan Sheboygan North, the Manitowoc Lincoln boys basketball team had a tough road ahead.

The host Golden Raiders began the game undefeated and stayed that way as the Ships fell 70-51.

After Lincoln (3-4, 1-2 FRCC), and North (6-0, 3-0), traded a pair of 3-pointers, the game settled down with both teams working inside.

Patrick Johnson picked up right where he left off last game for Lincoln, starting off with a 3-pointer before teammate Jake Rohrer converted two baskets inside for the Ships to tie the game at 7-7.

Johnson continued to trade 3-pointers with the Golden Raiders, with North matching the Ships 3-point specialist to extend its lead to 16-12 after Lincoln pulled within one. The first-quarter horn sounded as a shot by the Ships fell but after the buzzer to remain a four-point deficit.

North used a 4-0 run to extend its lead to six before Rohrer made a lay-up to halt the quick run. The Golden Raiders took advantage of a depleted Ships bench to lead 26-14 midway through the second quarter.

Kyle Hoffman stopped the bleeding by making a quick layup shortly after a timeout by Lincoln coach Brian Gallagher.

After a couple more 3-pointers, the Ships were staring up at a 36-20 deficit as Austin Mecca didn’t score his first points until almost the end of the first half. Mecca, who finished with a team-high 17 points, was controlled inside by the Golden Raiders 6-foot-4-inch freshman center Davis Larson.

A free throw right before the half made a tiny dent in Lincolns crater-sized hole, with the Ships trailing 36-21 at half.

Filling in for Mecca’s offensive presence was Rohrer, Johnson and Hoffman who each had six points in the first half. Hoffman finished with 16 and two 3’s.

To start the second half, Larson converted a North steal into a layup with the Golden Raiders showing no signs of slowing down. A quick 10-0 run put Lincoln in a 46-21 deficit.

The rest of the second half followed quit with a smaller North side hustling to balls and hitting deep shots, a total of seven 3-pointers would fall for the Golden Raiders. Mecca, meanwhile, got going in the second half and the rest of his Ships teammates continued to battle despite being down by almost 20 points most of the half.
