Lexington’s #32 London Jacob tipped the ball to #12 Corey Strain, who took it down for 2 to start the scoring for Lexington.

Lago was unable to convert on their first two trips down the court, but Lexington went for 2 each time, once by #32 London Jacob and then again by # 22 Nate Holcomb, to jump out to an early 6-0 lead.

The scoring went back and forth to end the first period 14- 9 Lexington. The second period showed more defense by both teams, and the scoring was cut in half. Half time score was Lexington still leading 18-14.

The scoring in the third started with a nice 3 point shot from Lexington’s #11 Jamyon Scott. Both teams were moving the ball and scoring, but, with 16 seconds left in the period, Lago fouled Scott and sent a player to the free throw line for the first time in the game.


Corey Strain lays up two, despite the defender’s pressure. Corey Strain lays up two, despite the defender’s pressure. Scott made the first but missed the second. Jacob got the rebound and was fouled while shooting, and was sent to the free throw line again 2 seconds later.

Jacob missed the first but made the second, to give Lexington 29 points. Lago added a 2-point shot with a buzzer beater to make the end of the third period score 29- 22 Lexington.

The fourth period had both teams scoring in double digits. Lexington was able to run fresh bodies into the game from off the bench. # 22 Nate Holcomb bombed 2 3-pointers in the fourth and Lexington closed out the game with a score of 46-37 Lexington.
