Hudson County semifinals
GIRLS BASKETBALL:Lincoln gets defensive in semifinal win over Marist
|Marist's Breyanna Frazier.
JERSEY CITY – Lincoln head coach Tommie Best has seen a couple of patterns in his team that have developed throughout this season. One is that his team has often gotten off to slow starts in big games. That has driven Best crazy, but the other is a much more calming pattern. While the offense has not always been there this year for the Lady Lions, their smothering defense has become their calling card. Facing Marist in the Hudson County semifinals, Lincoln put on a defensive clinic that moved it one step closer to its No. 1 goal for the season and that is to bring the Hudson County crown back to Jersey City. Lincoln held Marist without a field goal for 13 minutes spanning the first through third quarters and the second-seeded Lady Lions cruised into the program’s fifth straight Hudson County title game with a 47-37 win over third-seeded Marist on Wednesday night at the Yanitelli Center on the campus of St. Peter's University.
