PITTSBURG — Donovan Franklin led four Pittsburg State University men's basketball players in double figures with 22 points as the Gorillas defeated Lincoln University, 77-66, Saturday (Dec. 9) at John Lance Arena/Whetzel Court.

Pitt State (6-5, 1-3 MIAA) snapped a four-game losing streak with the win over the Blue Tigers (5-5, 0-2 MIAA).

The Gorillas broke open a 36-30 game at halftime by outscoring LU 22-7 to open the second half and build a 58-37 cushion with 9:57 to play. The Blue Tigers got as close as seven points, 68-61, on Maurice Mason's 3-pointer, but Pitt State's Demetrius Levarity countered with a layup and Franklin added a pair of free throws to extend the margin back to 11 26 seconds later.

Franklin made seven of 14 shots from the field. He added eight rebounds and four assists.

Xavier Adams posted a double-double with 11 points and a team-leading 10 rebounds, while Grant Lozoya chipped in with 13 points and five assists. Levarity also added 12 points.
