Lincoln works overtime magic 

Overtime was kind to the Lincoln boys’ basketball team again.

Deend Parker and Andrew Bologna each scored four points in overtime as the Mustangs turned back Marshall 61-56 in an Academic Athletic Association game.

Lincoln improved to 17-9 overall and 10-1 in the AAA. The Phoenix fell to 7-12 and 5-6.

Parker, battling theflu, was limited to five points in the first three quarters, but he came alive to score all nine of Lincoln’s points in the fourth quarter.

"Parker had a really good second half handling the ball and distributing the ball," Lincoln coach Mike Gragnani said. "That’s what he is supposed to do for us. We count on him on a day-to-day basis."

It was the second straight overtime victory for the Mustangs, who knocked off Wallenberg on Wednesday.

"I think we had a little hangover from the Wallenberg game," Gragnani said of the 58-57 win. "It took us a while to wake up. A couple of good defensive series got us back in the game."

Marshall’s long-distance shooting kept it in the game. The Phoenix were 9-of-17 from 3-point range.
