Knights, Links Advance Into State Hoops Semifinal

Lincoln–The Class A girls state championship game featured Lincoln East and Lincoln Southeast.  The Class A Boys title game might also match two capital city teams after both Lincoln High and Lincoln Southeast recorded first-round victories on Thursday at the Nebraska State High School Tournament.

Top-ranked and #1 seed Lincoln Southeast led Millard West 18-4 after the first quarter and ran away with a 65-34 win over the Wildcats.  Lincoln High's game with Omaha Central was much more exciting as the Links overcame an 11-point deficit to force overtime and pull off an exciting 68-61 come-from-behind win.
