After Lincolnview clinched its 17th win of the season with a 68-53 victory Thursday night on Senior Night in the season finale against Spencerville, it’s safe to say that goal has been achieved.
“Just to see the girls be rewarded for their hard work over the last couple of years (is great); they’ve been through a lot of injuries and ups-and-downs on and off the floor. To have them be rewarded in this fashion is awesome; they deserve it and, hopefully, we can get a couple of wins in the tournament,” said Lincolnview coach Dan Williamson.
The Lancers (17-5, 7-2) shot an impressive 51 percent (29-of-57) from the field Thursday night, 50 percent (4-of-8) from behind the arc.
Lincolnview senior guard Claire Dye led all scorers in her final regular-season game for the Lady Lancers with 21 points. She hit three 3-pointers on the evening, two of which helped turn the tide in their favor.
With Lincolnview leading by two, 24-22, late in the third, Dye hit a three to give the Lady Lancers a 5-point lead and sparked a 9-2 rally, which included another Dye trey, to close the half and give Lincolnview a 33-24 lead at the break.
