Zimmerman added two field goals to go with her four three-point makes to finish with 16 points. Barker ended the game with nine markers and four assists.

“We did well, especially with Karley (Miller) out of the lineup,” added Rowe. “It messed our rotations up, but Myriah (Iles) did pretty well and stepped up to the challenge.”

Iles made 6-of-7 shots to finish with 12 points and nine rebounds. Christina Johnson hit 4-of-4 shots in tallying 11 points and five rebounds.

The Lady Flames’ bench outscored the Bears, 44-16. Lee also held a 49-18 advantage on the boards.
