LINCOLN – Grand Island was able to rally to force over time, but came up short in the extra period.
Thanks to a timely three pointer by Kermit Felicia-Alvarez, and three clutch free throws by LeBeck Warren, with less than 10 seconds to play, the Islanders were able to force overtime at Lincoln High on Friday night. However, the Links outscored the Islanders 14-6 in OT to earn the 74-66 win.
Lincoln High travels to North Platte on Saturday while Grand Island hosts Lincoln Southwest. NCN 30 will broadcast the game between the Islanders and Silver Hawks with coverage beginning at 5 PM.
