The Lincoln Christian University Men's Basketball Program measures our success in three different areas:
- How we reflect Christ on the practice and game court.
- How we reflect Christ in the work that we do in the classroom.
- 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!

Men’s Basketball Head Coach
Mac Ingmire took the helm of LCU's men’s basketball program in the spring of 2013. Ingmire has a strong history with LCU men’s basketball, having played and served as an assistant coach there for the last five years.
During his first season as an assistant coach (2012-13), his team was ranked in multiple national statistical rankings even though the program win-loss record went 11-15. Coach Ingmire is proud of his team's performance on the defensive side of the ball. When Ingmire was assistant coach, LCU was ranked #8 in the country in scoring defense, holding opponents to an average of 71 points per game. LCU also ranked #3 in the country in 3-point defensive field goal shooting percentage, holding opponents to 29% from beyond the arc.
As a player, Coach Ingmire saw a lot of success playing under former Head Coach and LCU Athletic Hall of Fame member Matt Clark. For three of his four years of collegiate basketball, Coach Ingmire was the starting point guard and was a team captain during his sophomore, junior, and senior years. During his time, LCU achieved a National Tournament appearance, a Regional Championship game appearance, and a 20-win season. He is currently ranked in the LCU Men’s Basketball Top-5 All-Time lists for steals and assists in a career.
Coach Ingmire also serves as the LCU Athletic Director. He received his BA in Business Administration from LCU in 2012 and is currently pursuing his MS in Sports Administration and Coaching from Western Kentucky University.
