D2 Lincoln Memorial Routs Mars Hill 156-69

NCAA Div. II Lincoln Memorial routed Mars Hill 156-69, setting a South Atlantic Conference record for scoring and three-pointers.

 

LMU’s 156 points broke their own SAC all-time scoring mark of 143 set against Hiwassee back in 2009-10 season.

 

Their 30 threes made in the Dec. 11 game obliterated the previous conference record of 21 trifectas set by LMU back in 2007.

 

The Railsplitters also shot the highest field goal percentage (73.4 percent) and scored the most points in a half (86 points in the second half) in school history.

 

Their 87-point win was also the biggest margin of victory ever in the South Atlantic Conference.

 

“There’s really not much you can say. We played otherworldly. We could probably not have played any better,” LMU head coach Josh Schertz told the school’s website. “I thought we tried everything we could to be respectful of the game while having our guys play hard. We didn’t want our guys not to compete. That being said, it was a night where we couldn’t miss and they didn’t play nearly as well as they are capable of.”

 

“It was one of those nights where everything went perfect for us and everything probably went as bad as it could for them,” Schertz added.

 

Senior guard Trevon Shaw led Lincoln Memorial with 35 points, sophomore guard Cornelius Taylor had 19 points with 7 assists, while Deshawn Patterson scored 18 in 17 minutes off the bench.

 

In all a whopping eight players scored in double figures for LMU (9-0) in the historic victory.

 

“In 20 years, I’ve never seen anything like it,” coach Schertz said. “The efficiency to shoot 70 percent from three (30-of-43) on that volume of attempts is ridiculous. I’m really proud of our guys, how they played for 40 minutes, how they shared the ball and how they played for one another.”
