Lincoln University (PA) Men’s Basketball Staff Update

Lincoln University head men’s basketball coach Corey Lowery has announced the completion of his coaching staff with the retention of Allen Pritchett and the additions of Will Joyce and Keyshawn McMahon

“I am very excited about the men’s basketball staff that I assembled,” said Lincoln University head men’s basketball coach Corey Lowery. “There were three essential skills that I was searching for when selecting candidates to service our student-athletes. I wanted assistants that built great relationships with coaches and players and had experience recruiting specifically in the Northeast region.  

“I sought coaches that were very skilled at player development,” Lowery continued. “Lastly, I wanted coaches that had a passion for teaching and studying the game which would translate into them relaying information concisely to our student-athletes and developing outstanding scouting reports. Another crucial component that I sought was a relentless, tireless work ethic, and coaches that had a hunger to succeed.”

Pritchett, who will be in his second season with the Lions, is a carryover from the previous staff and will add Director of Player Development to his duties. Joyce will serve as the team’s assistant coach and McMahon will serve as the program’s video coordinator. 

“I am looking forward to being a part of the new men’s basketball coaching staff and embracing the new role assigned by Coach Lowery,” said Pritchett. 

Joyce comes to Lincoln after two seasons as an assistant coach at New Mexico Military Institute. In his second season with the Broncos, the team finished 15-14 en route to a fourth place finish in the Western Junior College Athletic Association conference. Prior to his two seasons at NMMI, Joyce began his coaching career as the head assistant coach at Kearns (Utah) High School in 2017.

“I am extremely blessed and grateful for this opportunity to be a part of a great coaching staff, whose desire is to assist our student-athletes to become great men on and off the court and also bring championships to Lincoln University,” said Joyce.

McMahon begins his collegiate career following the recent completion of his playing career. A 2019 graduate of Sterling College, McMahon was a key cog for the Warriors. He was ranked nationally in total assists and assists per game in both of his seasons at Sterling. McMahon played for Lowery at Essex County College, and they helped lead Essex County to a Region 19 championship and NJCAA National Tournament berth.

“I am excited and grateful to be a part of the LU family and community,” said McMahon. “I look forward to playing my role and doing my absolute best to help this team, staff, student-athletes, and the University reach greater heights.”

Lowery and his staff, in their first season, will be looking to turnaround a program that finished 9-20 in 2019-20.
