In 2015-2016, Lincoln Memorial made a run to the NCAA Division II National Championship game, but lost to Augustana (South Dakota) in the final. Before coming to LMU, Schertz was an assistant at High Point University, Queens University, Lynn University, and Florida Atlantic University. He is a three-time National Coach of the Year and a four-time South Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year.
Lincoln Memorial Set Plays
This play is designed to get an open 3-point shot on the wing. The play starts with 1 passing to 3 on the left wing and then cutting to the opposite corner. 3 drags the ball up to the top of the key as 5 and 4 set an elevator screen for 2 at the left elbow. 2 cuts through the screen to the left wing for a shot or rip and drive baseline.
Pitch Weave PNR
The Railsplitters start in a 2-3 high set and go through a couple of dribble handoffs (weave action) to start the play. Once LMU is ready, 5 steps out and sets a high ball screen for a guard getting the ball off of a weave handoff. The ball screen can be timed to be set towards the single side or two-man side if preferred.
