The Lincoln Christian University Men's Basketball Program measures our success in three different areas:

  1. How we reflect Christ on the practice and game court.
  2. How we reflect Christ in the work that we do in the classroom.
  3. How we perform on the court at game time.

Every year, there are specific expectations of our student-athletes. We strive for our basketball players to grow in their walk with Christ the minute they step on campus, while also striving for excellence in the classroom and on the court. We continue to have student-athletes from our program that are recognized for their community involvement and academic performance.

On the court, we look to always compete at our highest levels. We work on improving throughout the entire year. It is our expectation to compete every year for the Mid-West Regional Championship. As a player for LCU, I had the opportunity to participate in two Mid-West Regional Semi-Finals, one Mid-West Regional Championship game, and make one National Tournament appearance. Competing for Regional Championships and National Tournament appearances are expectations that this program has on a yearly basis.

If you're interested in talking with myself or another coach, I encourage you to fill out a Recruit-Me Form today. I look forward to talking with you soon!
