WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Grace’s men’s basketball team continued its unbeaten start to the season with a 108-65 win over Emmaus Bible on Saturday.

Logan Godfrey also did major damage in limited minutes. He shot 6-of-8 from the floor, producing 15 points in less than 16 minutes of action.

The Lancers quickly assumed a 10-point lead in Saturday’s game. Braxton Linville and Deaton buried back-to-back 3-pointers to put Grace ahead 17-7 after five minutes.

Grace’s scoring continued at a torrid pace in the first half, and the Lancers claimed a 50-20 edge at halftime. The Lancers shot 57 percent from the floor compared to 26 percent for Emmaus.

At the tournament’s conclusion, Deaton and Sons were named to the All-Tournament Team. Schiele was also named the inaugural winner of the Charles Hollar Mental Attitude award.
