Lincoln bows to Shea in boys hoops

January 29, 2013

On Tuesday night, the Raiders put together another splendid outing to sew up their fourth straight victory, this one coming at “The Cage” against neighboring Division II crossover foe Lincoln.
Junior guard Chris Mainville’s contest-high 21 points and nine assists and senior forward Alvin Semedo’s double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds led the way for the Raiders in their 63-48 triumph.
