Lincoln freshmen boys basketball team places second in PVL
By: Staff Report
Lincoln High’s freshmen boys basketball team went 17-7 overall and 8-4 in the Pioneer Valley League. Bear River won the PVL and Lincoln finished second. The Bruins went 2-0 against the Zebras, winning by four points and six points. “They hate to lose,” Lincoln coach Josh King said. “Riding home on the bus with them after we lost a game – nobody was talking and to me that’s what makes this group so special. And I think this is the group to bring a championship to Lincoln.” Lincoln averaged about 68 points per game and 5.6 3-pointers. Brian Keck (point guard), Jordan Albarron (shooting guard), Tyler Williamson (forward), Carlos Castro (forward) and Marty Morris (center) were the starters. King also signaled out Vadin Kotyash (forward), Jacob Gomez (shooting guard) and Trent Keeler (guard) for their strong play off the bench. “We had played in the spring league and got first place and from that into the summer league for the high school. And we bonded and had a family atmosphere,” King said. Albarron (14.9 points per game) and Keck (14.8) were the leading scorers for the Zebras.
