Henderson First Lincoln Native in NCAA Division I Tourney

March 16, 2002

Antonio Henderson, a 1998 graduate of LCHS, played 15 minutes and scored 6 points Friday night in the NCAA Basketball tournament for Murray State as the Racers fell to UGA 85-68.

He averaged about 9 points this season to help the Racers win the Ohio Valley Conference tournament championship. Several persons from Lincolnton travelled to Chicago to see him play in the first round game televised by CBS. Guil Mattison, who brought this information to us, said Antonio is probably the only Red Devil to ever play in this tournament. http://www.goracers.com/basketball/roster.htm
