The Lancers and Red Devils were deadlocked 11-11 after the first quarter, with Clayton Leeth accounting for five of Lincolnview’s points and Daegan Hatfield tying the game with a short shot.

Arlington (11-8) extended the lead to as many as nine, 31-22, in the second quarter, but back-to-back triples by Overholt and Jessee quickly pulled the Lancers to within three, 31-28. Bryce Gast, who scored 13 points in the quarter and 18 in the game, added a bucket that put Arlington ahead 33-28 at halftime.

Lincolnview (15-5) tied the game twice in the third quarter, 37-37 on a trey by Collin Overholt and 40-40 on a three pointer by Aaron Cavinder, but Arlington pulled ahead and led 46-43 at the end of the period.

A trey by Zavier Thornton gave Arlington a 51-46 lead in the fourth quarter, but the Lancers answered and took the lead for the first time on consecutive triples by Overholt and Cavinder. The two teams went back and forth from there, with Lincolnview taking a 61-60 lead on a shot by Jessee and the final point coming on a foul shot by Leeth. A three point attempt by Thornton was off the mark at the end of the game.

Leeth and Cavinder each scored six points in the game, and Jake Bowersock finished with five points and 10 rebounds. Overholt dished out eight assists.

Lincolnview was 23-of-46 from the floor, including 12-of-22 from three point range and 4-of-9 from the foul line with 25 rebounds. Arlington was 22-of-49 shooting and 8-of-14 from the free throw line with 27 rebounds.
