GRAMBLING — Finish strong and try to get to .500 to close out regular-season play.
That’s the focus for the Lincoln Prep Panthers as they head into their Homecoming game against Ringgold at 7 p.m. today at Eddie G. Robinson Stadium.
The Panthers stand at 2-5 overall and 1-2 in District 1-1A play. But a road win over Ringgold combined with road victories at Plain Dealing and Arcadia to close out their regular season slate would give the Panthers solid momentum heading into the Class 1A playoffs.

Only three players last season started all 33 games.
Two of them were forwards — Erik McCree and Omar Sherman. And they have both moved on, along with their combined 1728 minutes, 903 points and 462 boards.
That is 26 percent of the minutes, 35 percent of the scoring and 37 percent of the rebounding gone, vanished, sayonara.
So the big (literally) question mark coming into the 2017-18 season is who soaks up those minutes. Who helps the offense score? And perhaps most importantly, who steps up in place of the top two rebounders?
