Evanston runs past Lincoln Park

SHARE Evanston runs past Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park literally couldn’t catch up to Evanston on Saturday, as the fast-paced Wildkits trounced the Lions, 64-38, at Beardsley Gym.

Evanston dominated from the opening tip, riding a number of transition baskets to a 46-16 halftime lead.

Lincoln Park was only outscored 19-17 in the second half, but that was due in no small part to the Wildkits pouring out their bench after halftime.

With the starters barely playing, it was junior guard Morgan Muno leading the way with 12 points off of the bench for Evanston. Sophomore forward Wali Deutsch also received significant playing time and showed a pretty shooting touch with nine points.

While Evanston’s starters didn’t play much, they did help the Wildkits jump out to a 19-2 lead. Lincoln Park continually was unable to get back on defense and Evanston exploited that for a number of fast-break buckets.

Meanwhile, senior center Alecia Cooley scored six of the Wildkits’ first 11 points with a putback, a bank shot and a layup in transition.
