WINONA LAKE – The Grace College men’s basketball team could not keep up with the firepower of No. 11 Marian, losing 83-74 on Saturday.

The Knights (22-6, 11-5 CL) shot 49 percent for the game and 45 percent from beyond the arc, and Marian was even better in the first half.

Grace’s Logan Godfrey posted an impressive 20-point, 10-rebound double-double on Senior Day, and Charlie Warner was the Lancers’ leading scorer with 24 points. Warner was 6 of 6 from the arc.

The Lancers (13-15, 3-13 CL) never led on Saturday. Marian quickly jumped out to a 16-6 lead after just six minutes of action.

Grace struggled to cut into Marian’s cushion and trailed by double figures for most of the half.

Warner did his best to keep pace with the Knights; he hit consecutive three-pointers to bring Grace to within 37-30.

But Marian still led 44-36 at halftime despite a last-second putback basket by Godfrey. The Knights made 17 of 29 from the floor (59 percent), and Marian drilled 8 of 12 (67 percent) from the three-point line.

Godfrey, Warner and Haden Deaton combined to score 34 of Grace’s 36 points in the first half.

Marian was consistent to maintain its lead throughout the second half and eventually built the cushion up to 16 with 12 minutes remaining.

The Lancers made a push at that juncture, however, with a 9-0 run. Warner buried a three-pointer, Deaton scored in the paint, and Godfrey made back-to-back shots. After Godfrey’s last basket, the Lancers trailed 70-63 with 8:25 to go.

Grace was unable to bridge any further, though, and fell by nine.

The Lancers shot 41 percent compared to Marian’s 49 percent. Grace did grab 15 offensive rebounds and had 17 assists to just 10 turnovers.

Deaton scored 19 points with seven boards after making 8 of 15, and Jaret Sons had seven points, three boards and two assists.

Eddie Gill IV added two points, six rebounds and three assists, and Tyce Frank handed out six assists and made two steals.

Saturday was also Senior Day to honor the graduating class of Godfrey and Tim Swanson.

The loss officially ends Grace’s chances to get into the Crossroads League Tournament. The Lancers will have a shot to qualify for NCCAA Nationals with one week remaining in the regular season. Grace’s final home game of the regular season is on Tuesday, hosting Huntington at 7 p.m.

West Stowers led Marian with 25 points, while Reginald Kissoonlal scored 24 points.
