Lincoln, Pittsburg State set for MIAA clash tonight
Wednesday, January 4, 2012
Something’s got to give. When the Lincoln women’s basketball team plays host to the Pittsburg State Gorillas today, one team will see a winning streak come to an end.
The Blue Tigers come into the contest (5:30 p.m. tipoff ) on the heels of a perfect month, as Lincoln went 5-0 in December.
The Blue Tigers come into the game tied for third in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, as they are 9-1 overall and 4-1 in the conference.
On the men’s side, Lincoln will be hoping the new year is friendlier than the old one.
When Lincoln takes to the court against Pittsburg State (7:30 p.m. tipoff ), the Blue Tigers will be looking to improve on their 1-9 overall record, which includes a mark of 1-4 in the MIAA.
The Blue Tigers’ woes are due in large part to their shooting, as they’ve made just 39.9 percent of their shots from the field this season.
