By Jeff Motz
FREMONT---What was a sluggish first half for the Lincoln High boys basketball team was the complete opposite in the second half.
The Links used an 11-0 run to start the third quarter and held off Fremont for a 64-51 victory Friday night at the Al Bahe Gymnasium.
Lincoln High (10-9) sprinted out to the early run when Jihad Muhammad converted on a three-point play, then Morgan Perry answered on a layup. Sammy Richardson hit a three-pointer before Fremont called time out with 5:54 left in the quarter. Then Perry hit a three-pointer as part of the run.
Fremont (4-14) didn't score their first point of the second half until 4:04 left in the third when 6-7 senior sank a pair of free throws. Dillon Dix hit the Tigers' first field goal of the half with 1:51 remaining with a three-pointer from the left corner.
Lincoln High outscored Fremont 23-11 in the third quarter.
The Tigers got as close as ten in the final period before the Links pulled away.
Both teams were tied at 6 after the first quarter, but Fremont surged ahead during the second quarter when Harms and Zach Woehrer combined to score 12 points to give the Tigers a 21-20 lead at halftime.
Harms led Fremont with 20 points, while Woehrer added 12. Perry led Lincoln High in the victory with 15 points and Richardson added 10.
