12/09/2011 - LES GAME OF THE WEEK: RESERVES SPARK LNE OVER COLUMBUS


By Jeff Motz

Connor Deines and Connor Springman were not in the starting line up for Lincoln Northeast boys basketball coach David Mercer.  But after their performance in a 59-36 win against Columbus Friday night at the Ed Johnson Gym, they may have increase their stock for playing time.

Deines, a senior, finished with a game-high 19 points for the Rockets (1-2) while the sophomore Springman had 12 points, 10 of which came in the first half that helped spark a 17-4 run in the 2nd quarter. 

Columbus jumped ahead 8-0 to start the game behind the shooting of Dakota Wright.  Springman ended the run with a three-pointer and helped the Rockets go on a 9-1 run to finish the first quarter.

Northeast started the second quarter on a 13-0 run behind threes from Deines and Springman and a pair of free throws from 6-5 senior center David Dep, enroute to a 26-13 halftime lead.

Columbus (0-3) would get as close as 12 points the rest of the game and Northeast continued to pull away, leading 39-24 after the third quarter.

Free throws were still a crutch for the Rockets, shooting 20-of-38 from the line, but much better than the 9-of-25 in their loss Monday night to Lincoln East.  Columbus only shot 11-of-23 from the line. 


NORTHEAST GIRLS 50, COLUMBUS 41

Kansas State recruit Brianna Craig scored a game-high 21 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to help the Rockets advenge a loss to the Discoverers in Monday's Greater Nebraska Shootout championship. 

Northeast's 6-2 sophomore center Toni Tupper added 13 points.  Columbus got double-digit performances from senior guard Sammi Licari, who finished with 18 points before fouling out.  Elle Klink added 15 points in the Discoverers' loss.
