Lincoln steps up, downs Marshall

Marshall shutout top Academic Athletic Association talent Deend Parker from the field for almost three quarters, so the Lincoln boys’ basketball team had to spread the buckets around.

Drew Bologna’s 16 points led four Mustangs (11-9, 4-1) in double-digit scoring as they rolled past the host Phoenix (4-9, 2-3) 65-58.

Parker was kept to the free-throw line until hitting a trey with under 25 seconds left in the third, but he helped out everywhere else on the court, grabbing nine rebounds and assisting for four scores.

“We’ve been working with Deend as far as how he can contribute,” Mustangs coach Mike Gragnani said of his six-foot-6 junior. “He’s not just about points, has to be one of our best defensive rebounders also, and he’s learning and getting better every day.”

Parker’s field goal put the Mustangs ahead for the last time after Laurence Melton, who tallied a game-high 24 points, had dragged the Phoenix into a 2-point lead by scoring all his team’s 11 points of the period.

Randall Gacayon chipped in 13 points for the Mustangs, while Charles Gardener helped out the Phoenix with 13 points and nine rebounds.
