The PVL's top team has its work cut out for themselves. No I'm not talking about Colfax, Foothill or Placer. Get this I'm referring to the Fighting Zebras of Lincoln High School (19-5 overall, 6-1 league) who will match up at Placer on Feb. 8 and then travel to Colfax on Feb. 12.

Lincoln fell to the Hillman earlier in the season at home by a score of 66-43 while the defeated the Falcons at home by a score of 57-46.

In non-league action Lincoln did beat Del Oro (16-8) by a score of 74-69.

The Zebras do have some very good record as well as some impressive wins at home to hold onto the top spot in the PVL. They have struggled against Center (1-6) even though they did win by scores of 38-35 and 45-44.

This team will have to find a way to win on the road against two perennial PVL powerhouse programs.

What makes Lincoln so good? They have 3 boys who average double figures which makes it tough to defend. Marcus Salgado who loves to shoot the 3-ball has averaged 13.5 points per game, slasher Adam Felt delivers 11.8 ppg with 8 boards and all-around talent Alexis Gonzalez scores 10 per game.

If that sounds good, the player who completes the team is the hard-nosed banger Logan Stayner. He works hard and will kill you on the glass which gives Lincoln firepower.

Head coach Robert Ash will looked to win the PVL not only this year but next as well as they only have 4 seniors on their roster of 13.

Prediction - Colfax wins PVL. They play Bear River (1-6), Center (1-6) as well as close out the season with Lincoln who struggles on the road and the Falcons are near impossible to beat in their gym.
