Building blocks; Wilcats are looking for points, rebounds, and community service

Once again, the Wildcats showed a balanced attack with 12 different players contributing to the victory. Jackson paced the offense with 17 points. Chris Austin had 10 points and five assists. Taylor (9 points, 7 rebounds) and Dairyon Davis (7 points) contributed. Every player scored. Eight players earned assists. The defense held Bunker Hill to just 24.6 percent shooting, and Lincoln rallied to a 78-55 win.

“It comes down to the hard work of all our players,” said Beverly. “We have a great group of kids from all over, and it’s that fight. I really think that, at the end of the season when we’re looking back on all this, we have the ability to be in every game. That’s really what I want from them and what I want them to want for themselves.”

So far, everyone’s a winner.
