Early three pointers and free throws down the stretch were key parts to victory Friday night for Lincoln North Star.

The Gators kept their contention for a city championship alive with a 52-46 victory over Lincoln Southeast in a boys basketball game at The Swamp.

Connor Musiel hit four three pointers in the game and finished with a game-high 16 points for North Star. 

Defensively, the Gators (7-5) allowed only 13 first half points.  But the Knights got a boost in the third quarter, after trailing 28-22 at halftime.

When Southeast closed the gap 31-26 early in the fourth quarter off a Jake Nannen layup, North Star countered with a three from Musiel, then forced a turnover and Austin Horan scored on a drive to extend the Gator lead back to ten, 36-26.

North Star hit 10 of 14 free throws late in the game.  Southeast missed seven close rage shots in the came, resulting in a 14-point swing. Most of those missed baskets were from point-blank range.  That led to Southeast crashing the boards and outrebounding the Gators 35-21

Nannen and Aaron Walker each led Southeast with 10 points.
