Lincoln County improves to 3-0 with win at Lakeside; introducing Ahmad Rand!

Rand recorded his second consecutive triple-double Tuesday.
For the second time in four days, Lincoln County's Ahmad Rand posted video game statistics, this time in a 66-62 win at Lakeside. The 6'7" junior center scored 16 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, and swatted away 11 shots in an encore of his 23 point, 15 rebound, 15 block outing in Saturday's win over Josey.

Lakeside could not crack Lincoln County's defensive code in the first half. The Panthers were not able to include freshman Kalen Williams in the offense and their leading scorer (16 ppg) through 5 games was only able to make a single field goal against the Red Devils' denying and double teaming scheme.

But Williams found some daylight in the second half, nailing 3 threes, including one off the dribble in transition, and another from near half court! The phenomenal 14 year old scored 15 second half

points and set up teammates Kresean Hall and Brad Hilley for open looks. The trio made a combined 8 second half threes during a furious comeback that culminated in a 54 all tie after Williams beat a double team and made a high arching jumper over Rand's outstretched arms.

But Crite's relentless attack, Rand's presence on both ends and sophomore Maciah Gunby's timely shot making were too much to overcome.

Crite led all scorers with 21. Rand added 16 and Gunby 15. Hall led Lakeside with 18 and Williams scored 17.
