LMU picks up 20th win of the season at Wingate

WINGATE, N.C. — Jalen Steele (Knoxville, Tenn.), Gerel Simmons (Accokeek, Md.) and Luquon Choice (Laurens, S.C.) matched Wingate’s point total to lead the fifth-ranked Railsplitters (20-2, 16-0 SAC) to a 107-74 win over the Bulldogs in South Atlantic Conference men’s hoops action on Saturday at Cuddy Arena.

Lincoln Memorial’s three-headed monster combined for 74 points to fuel the Railsplitters’ ninth 100-point performance of the season. Steele led that trio with 32 points, as the Knoxville, Tenn. native finished 11-for-19 from the field and one three-pointer shy of tying his and Choice’s single-game record for threes with a 9-for-12 mark from deep. Simmons fell just short of a triple-double with 24 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals, while Choice went 5-for-8 from three-point range to score 18 points, which he coupled with seven rebounds and three assists.

The win gives the Railsplitters their seventh consecutive 20-win season – a feat that had happened only one other time in the program’s more than 100-year history – and extends the best SAC start in league history to 16-0. Continue reading: LMU picks up 20th win of the season at Wingate
