Grace wins sixth straight to start the season

CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio – Grace’s men’s basketball team continued its perfect start to the season with an 87-63 win at Ohio Christian on Tuesday.

The Lancers (6-0) enjoyed a career evening from Charlie Warner. Warner set a career high with 29 points, making 10-of-14 from the floor and 7-of-9 from the 3-point line. Warner’s previous career bests were 21 points and five triples.

Grace never trailed in its road matchup on Tuesday. Logan Godfrey scored the first points of the game, and the Lancers’ lead only grew.

Warner sparked Grace early, pouring in nine points in just three minutes to give the Lancers separation. A 3-pointer from Jaret Sons put Grace ahead 29-15 with 8:56 left in the opening half.

At halftime, Grace led by 15 at 46-31. The Lancers shot 52 percent in the half compared to 39 percent by the Trailblazers (2-6).

In the second half, OCU did its best to rally. The Trailblazers used a pair of 3-pointers to pull within 60-50 with 12:19 remaining.

But Warner responded with two triples of his own in just 61 seconds, and OCU never recovered.

Grace’s lead ballooned to 26 in the waning minutes for the final 24-point margin of victory.

Godfrey tallied the lone double-double of the night with 15 points and 18 rebounds, shooting 7-of-10 from the floor.

Haden Deaton scored 10 points and grabbed five boards, and Jaret Sons and Eddie Gill IV each scored eight.

Joseph Smith had seven points and three boards, Braxton Linville handed out five assists, and Martin Schiele scored four points.

As a team Grace outrebounded Ohio Christian 36-19. The Lancers shot 56 percent from the floor and 52 percent from beyond the arc.

The Lancers return home this weekend for the annual Terry Polston Hoops for Hope. Grace will host Silver Lake on Friday at 8 p.m. and Emmaus on Saturday at 4 p.m. in the cancer care tournament.
