Lincoln 59, Lowell 46

Junior forward Deend Parker led his team with 19 points and six rebounds as the Mustangs (18-9, 11-1) went on the road to beat the two-time defending champion Cardinals (18-7, 9-3).

"It’s a nice win for us," Lincoln coach Mike Gragnani said. "It’s been four or five years since we beat them. But all it is is a league win. We just have to keep on getting better."

The Mustangs defense held Lowell scoreless for more than six minutes in the third quarter and only four points in the final period.

The Cardinals started the game fast with four 3-pointers in the first quarter to jump up to an 18-8 lead. But Lincoln senior point guard Drew Bologna had three steals and directed his team to a 25-point second quarter and pulled to within a point.

"Drew has got a heart of a lion," Gragnani said. "His motors are alwaysrunning. He only knows one way to play. He has made huge improvement since last year. I am really proud of Drew."

Senior point guard Travis Hom led Lowell with 15 points, seven rebounds and four steals. He scored all of Lowell’s four points in the fourth quarter.
