No. 15 LMU Railsplitters Advance to NCAA Southeast Regional Semifinals with 118-86 Win over Pfeiffer
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Emanuel Terry and Chris Perry (pictured) combined for 48 points and 18 rebounds as the second-seeded and No. 15 nationally-ranked Railsplitters (27-5) advanced to the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional semifinals with a wire-to-wire 118-86 win over the seventh-seeded Pfeiffer Falcons (26-5) on Saturday, March 11 at the Levine Center.
Lincoln Memorial, which is heading to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive year, will face sixth-seeded Limestone at 5 p.m. on Sunday, with the winner of that contest advancing to Tuesday's Southeast Regional championship game. "I was proud of our guys," said head coach Josh Schertz. "I thought we played with a lot of purpose and were really locked in. They are a difficult team to guard and play against. It was a good win and we're looking forward to having the opportunity to play again tomorrow." The 6-9 Terry and 6-8 Perry proved to be way too much for Pfeiffer to handle, as that duo combined to go 20-for-24 from the field. Terry scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds in just 19 minutes off the bench, while Perry scored 23 points to go along with nine rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes as well.
