NEW YORK — Lincoln got the better of Jefferson again. And the Railsplitters didn’t need 35 points from Lance Stephenson to do it.
Senior Anthony Allen scored a game-high 25 points and added 10 rebounds, Stephenson tallied 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists and Allen West made two clutch free throws in the final minutes to give Lincoln an 87-83 victory over Jefferson in PSAL Brooklyn AA action before a capacity crowd at Lincoln that included St. John’s head coach Norm Roberts.
“I don’t want to lose, so I want to go undefeated in the PSAL,” Stephenson said. “I’m trying to win every game so that’s why I got my teammates involved in the first half.”
