Thursday, March 1, 2012
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Lincoln kicked off the month of March with an upset. Arriana Walker was the reason why.
The seventh-seeded Blue Tigers toppled second-seeded Pittsburg State, the No. 12 team in the nation, 83-77 in the quarterfinals of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tournament on Thursday night at Municipal Auditorium.
After dropping both regular season meetings to the Gorillas, the Blue Tigers won the game that mattered. The victory marks Lincoln’s first playoff win in program history.
