Lee Women Dominate Brewton-Parker 82-34

Saturday, January 19, 2013
The Lee women's basketball team jumped out early and never looked back, defeating Brewton-Parker 82-34 Saturday afternoon at Walker Arena.

With the win the sixth-ranked Lady Flames move to 17-1 overall and 8-1 in the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC). The loss drops the Lady Barons to 7-12 overall and 3-8 in conference games.

Lee outscored BPC 40-14 in the first 20 minutes of action, setting the tone for the game on both ends of the court. The second stanza was more of the same as the Lee defense allowed just six field goals in route to the 48-point victory.


"Overall I was pleased with our defensive effort today. We were a little slow moving our feet in the beginning, but for about 32 minutes we really played well on both ends of the floor." noted coach Marty Rowe. " You saw the type of aggressive defense I want our girls to play today, we also moved the ball well on the offensive end and kept the pressure on them the entire afternoon."

The defense Rowe spoke of limited Brewton-Parker to just 22 percent (12-of-54) shooting from the field and forced 24 turnovers, leading to 33 points. Lee shot 42 percent (29-of-69) from the field and converted 16-of-25 from the foul line, good for 64 percent. The Lady Flames dominated on the glass, outrebounding the Lady Barons, 58-29.

Junior Hollie German once again paced the Lee attack. She finished with a game-high 28 points, hitting 10-of-18 from the field and 5-of-10 from behind the arc. German leads the SSAC in scoring, averaging 21.1 ppg. Sophomore Jenna Adams pulled down 19 rebounds and added 10 points. Junior Myriah Illes finished with 10 points and eight boards.

The victory gave Rowe an opportunity to look at some of his younger players, " It was also a good opportunity for our younger players to see some quality playing time and I was also pleased with their effort. We need to see them improve as we move into the heart of our schedule."

Freshman Melanie Barker finished with 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting from the field. Another Freshman, Christina Johnson, added 12 rebounds, three points and two steals for the Lady Flames.

Brewton-Parker was paced by Brianna Webb who finished with 12 points. Crystal Nwaopara added 7 markers and four rebounds for the Georgia-based club.

The Lady Flames will head on the road next week beginning with a stop in Cleveland, Ga. to square off with SSAC rival Truett-McConnell on Tuesday evening. Tip time is set for 6 p.m.
