Lincoln is shooting 2 of 12 from the floor (16.7%). It has 0 for 5 from 3-point range. Lincoln too willing to settle for first open look instead of working the ball around.

points in the paint in the first quarter and chucked up seven treys. Those numbers should be reversed, at least.

Lincoln 4 of 19 on FGs and 1 of 7 from 3 point range. Lincoln has open looks from 3, but if the shots aren't falling, the Tigers need to find ways to get inside.
