Prep boys basketball: Lincoln drops nail-biter against North


A last-second shot by Jake Rohrer didn’t fall for the Manitowoc Lincoln boys basketball team, which fell 60-58 to visiting Sheboygan North on Tuesday.

Rohrer led Lincoln with a team-high 14 points and 11 rebounds for the double-double while teammates Kyle Hoffman and Patrick Johnson each had 12.

Kyle Hoffman in-bounded the ball with 3.5 seconds for the Ships but the ball was knocked loose. It rolled to Rohrer, who put up a desperation shot which didn’t go in as he was double teamed.

Patrick Johnson jump started the Ships offense, connecting on a pair of 3-pointers to score six of Lincoln’s first eight points. Teammate Hoffman spurned the offense towards the end of the frame, as the Ships held a 16-14 advantage as the horn sounded.

The second quarter got started with North’s Ethan Guske hitting a pair of 3’s to put the Golden Raiders ahead momentarily, trading baskets with Hoffman. Guske entered the game needing 17 points to break the all-time scoring record for North, finishing with 30.

Another string of 3’s put Lincoln up 26-20 midway through the second quarter. Little scoring happened the rest of the way, with the Ships entering the half up 28-24.

Both sides went back and forth, as Guske heated up in the third including breaking the Golden Raiders scoring record midway through the quarter. Lincoln was outscored 22-17 in the quarter to trail 46-45 to end the third, but a half-court shot by Nick Schroeder to beat the buzzer gave the Ships something to celebrate.

North hit a 3 seconds into the fourth quarter, which was all the scoring for the longest time before Guske and Hoffman began to trade 3’s. Hoffman tied the game at 50-50 before Guske hit his sixth 3 of the game to put North up by three once again.

The Ships trailed 58-56 with 42 seconds remaining, before Rohrer hit a layup to level the game at 58-58 after a missed free throw on the other end by the Golden Raiders gave Lincoln life.

With 30.2 seconds left in the game, North played for the last shot and took the lead with 5.5 seconds left after a Guske shot was missed and tipped in by the Golden Raiders.
