Paine College getting hot at the right time

Friday, February 21, 2014

Augusta, Ga--After a month or so a lot of people were wondering when we'd see the true Paine basketball team. While it took longer then expected to get everyone on the same page, they're all there now and the final chapter could be a good one.

Just over a week remains in the regular season and lots to play for. The Lions have won five in a row and seven of eight and are now battling for the two seed in the upcoming S.I.A.C. Tournament. The offense is clicking on all cylinders and coach Jimmy Link is trying to keep them focused on the big picture.

"I'm big on that, and I talk about it all the time in the lockerroom about our placement now" said Jimmy Link "I think they need to know and know how valuable each game is down this stretch, especially in February"

The Lions own a game lead for second in the east, but their four remaining games are against those chasing them or on top of the division standings. They tip off tomorrow around 3pm at the Heal Complex.
