Adam Price scored 21 points, and five teammates added 10-plus, as Lake Land defeated Lincoln Land, 100-81, to snap a seven-game losing streak Saturday in men’s basketball action.
Price, who made 5-of-8 from 3-point range, also had four assists. Ty Waller scored 14, Jason Larson had 11, and Amari Sherrod, Clint Weber, and Hunter White contributed 10 apiece.
Nick Cohorst grabbed eight rebounds, Weber had seven and White six, along with four assists.
Lake Land started quickly when Price made two 3s in the first minute.
After Lincoln Land hit a 3, the Lakers took off, never allowing the Loggers to ever get as close again.
The Lakers exploded for 54 first-half points to take a 19 point lead, an advantage that would swell to 22 at one point.
Lake Land shot 56% from the field, including 12-21 (57%) from 3-point range. Lincoln Land, meanwhile, shot 42% on 9-of 28 (32%). The Lakers won the boards by a 37-29 margin, including 12 offensive rebounds.
“I thought we did a good job defensively considering that we were trying some new defensive sets out and we were playing short-handed,” Lake Land coach Brandon Colvin said. “We still have some work to do, but this was a good step forward for the guys.”
The Lakers next play at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday night when they host Region 24 foe Kaskaskia College (9-5).
