In typical fashion, Drew Edmond took charge on the basketball court and his Lincoln Southwest teammates followed suit. The 5-9 senior guard scored 14 points, 11 of which came in a second half spurt, to lead the Silver Hawks to a 50-33 over Grand Island at The Nest Saturday night.
Edmond sparked the start of a 13-point third quarter with a lay up and hit a three down the stretch for a 39-25 advantage. Grand Island could not catch up with the quicker Southwest ball club the rest of the way. The Silver Hawk transition game resulted in baskets from Vino Brown, Rylan Cotton and Jordan Tyrance.
Edmond scored six points in the final period to help seal the win for Silver Hawks (8-9) who lost by 16 points to second ranked Norfolk Friday night.
In the first half, Grand Island hung in with Southwest through a quarter and a half before Rylan Cotton scored six straight points in the final 3:35 of the second quarter. Tyrance and Matt Robertson hit close range baskets and Landon Schmidt hit two free-throws for Southwest and a 26-16 lead.
Heath added 10 points in the win for Southwest. Travis Schueler led Grand Island with 14 points and Aaron Ogden finished with 10 points for the Islanders.
