01/20/2017 - BOYS BASKETBALL: Southeast Wins Battle Over Lincoln High

By Jeff Motz

If you have followed boys basketball over the years in Lincoln, you know that each game can be a dogfight.  Especially, when two teams are searching for as many wins as they can get midway through a season.

Lincoln Southeast came out on top of a slugfest with Lincoln High 65-61 Friday night at the Prasch Activities Center that proved to be what intra-city basketball has been for many years, regardless of record.

It was Lincoln High, who took a 15-9 first quarter lead, by going on a 7-0 run to finish the period.  But Southeast roared back behind the play of Sevryn Foster, who led the Knights in scoring with 17 points, and Brayden Day--whose free throw gave them a 27-26 halftime lead.

Southeast (6-8) led 48-41 after three quarters behind Foster and Isaiah Laughlin, who finished with 11 points.  

Lincoln High (5-10) surged back in the fourth quarter, behind Jaylin Hunter and Sammy Richardson.  Hunter finished with a game-high 27 points, while Richardson, who left the game with 30 seconds left with an undisclosed injury, finished with 14.  

The Links cut the deficit to 58-55 when Carlos Santistevan converted on a three-point play.  After Lincoln High pulled to within two, Southeast answered with a basket from Michael Anderson and another from Alex Euse to give the Knights a 64-58 advantage.

After a Southeast free throw, Hunter hit a three for the Links at the buzzer for the final score of 65-61.
