Dominic's Tourney, Runner-Up Finish Pleasing to Coach


Joe Lyons St. Charles Post, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


St. Dominic High boys basketball coach Jim Lincoln was thrilled with the first St. Dominic Christmas Tournament. And not just because the Crusaders finished second.

"Our goal was to put on a first-class event and I think we reached that goal," the coach said. "I received a lot of positive comments from the coaches involved and had a number of other coaches ask about getting into the tournament in the future.

"I don't think any coach would be disappointed with the week we had," said Lincoln, whose team went from 1-7 to 4-8. "At the same time, though, our kids weren't satisfied with second place. They realize that this is just one tournament and that we still have a long way to go to become the team we want to be.

"But it was definitely a step in the right direction. …
