THAT’S TWO IN A ROW

By: Michael Howard Last night The Lincoln University Lions rallied together to bring home their second straight win on their home court with a score of 89-79. The Lions were led by freshman forwards Deaquan Williams and Jordan Camper, both who recorded double-doubles helping the Lions to a win. The two were amongst five Lion players who scored double figures for the team.

With a  late enrollment, not having enough transferable credits, and eventually money problems, I was ready to give up and go back home. However, the one ...
