LE MARS — Abraham Lincoln boys basketball improved to 3-0 on the season after a 57-43 win at LeMars Tuesday night.

“We played really good basketball three out of the four quarters,” A.L. coach Jason Isaacson said. “Defensively, our energy was really good and then offensively, we really shared the ball.”

Rucker was also pleased with what he got from a couple of his seniors.

“We were up 27-21 in the third quarter, we hit a little bit of adversity and then our inexperience showed tonight,” Treynor coach Joe Chapman said. “Coach Miller did a nice job; he has a couple of nice players there that are hard to defend. We spent so much time on defense that maybe our offensive execution wasn’t quite where it needed to be. Great thing is, our effort was good and we’ll certainly build on it.”

Tori Castle scored 10 points for the Cardinals.

Audubon was led by Jaci Christensen’s 14 points.
