While the triple-double is rare, Brown said she likes being able to take advantage of her height and position.
"Sometimes, I'll tell my teammates, 'Let them come in,' so I can block them," she said. "If some of my teammates do get beat, I like to be there to help cut them off so the offensive player doesn't get an easy layup."
Brown and the Lady Patriots (20-4, 5-0 45th District) presented a stingy defense throughout the district clash, holding Danville (9-11, 1-5) to just 11 percent shooting overall.
"When a team shoots 11.1 percent overall against you, you must have done something right and Kendra was a big part of that because 14 of those misses were her blocks," said Story. "When you've got that weapon inside, that hurts a lot of teams because they don't get an easy look even if they do get by our perimeter players."
Lincoln's defense put the stops on the Danville offense for a lengthy period Friday, holding the Lady Admirals without a field goal until late in the third quarter. After missing its first 31 shot attempts, Danville finally hit, with Kasey Young ending the drought with a 3-pointer with 2:16 showing for a 41-15 margin.
Lincoln point guard Alissa Patterson, who finished with 13 points, got the Lady Pats off to a big start with 10 first-quarter points. Brown had four points in the period as Lincoln opened a 17-6 lead.
Young, who had nine points for Danville, sank four free throws in the first. Tiffany Yates, who led Danville with 11, had two free throw tosses.
Lincoln rolled off 12 straight points in the second quarter to blow the game wide open. Brown hit inside to open the run then blocked a shot to set up a Nikki Bustle trey. A Brown defensive rebound led to a Korey Coleman basket then Brown scored off a Bustle steal to put Lincoln up 26-6. Jessica Upchurch turned another Danville turnover into a basket and Shelby Smith and Emily Fox each sank a free throw as Lincoln posted a 30-6 lead.
The clock had wound down to 1:11 before Danville tallied its first points of the second period — two Yates' free throws. Hannah Mountjoy added one more free throw before the buzzer to make it 30-9 at the half.
The Lady Ads finished the first half 0-for-21 from the field and 9-for-18 at the free throw line with 13 turnovers.
Henderson, who had 10 points and six rebounds, kicked off a 9-1 Lady Pat run to open the third quarter, scoring two straight putbacks. After sinking two free throws, Brown then grabbed an Upchurch free-throw miss for a bucket and a 39-10 advantage.
Lincoln went on to post a 45-18 lead at the end of the third and, despite letting Danville outscore them the fourth quarter, the Lady Pats moved on for the easy win.
Lincoln shot 53 percent for the game (21-for-39), but the ballhandling was amiss as the Lady Patriots turned the ball over 33 times.
"I was pleased with the first two quarters then we got a little sloppy," Story said. "It's hard to stay focused when you're up 30-9 at the half, but you need to be able to do that. We've got to put four quarters together."
"The fourth quarter was most disappointing (10 turnovers) but the 33 turnovers were most unacceptable," he added.
Lincoln held Danville to 5-for-45 shooting and outrebounded the Lady Ads 39-22.
Danville did make up for some of its misses with a 19-for-37 stint at the charity stripe.
"I guess we fouled them before they got a chance to shoot," Story said. "I thought we did slap a lot and pick up some unnecessary fouls. I don't know if we broke down and played really good defense — Ken's (Brown) a big weapon inside to always be there waiting if someone does get by us — but we've got to do a better job playing defense."
