Lee Women Win At Belhaven 65-48

Friday, January 4, 2013
The Lee women's basketball team used the combination of Hollie German and Karley Miller, both scoring 18 points, to grab the road victory over Belhaven, 65-48 Friday evening.

The sixth-ranked Lady Flames move to 12-1 overall and 3-1 in Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC). The loss drops the Blazers to 5-9 on the year and 2-3 in conference play.

Lee was in control the entire game, leading 30-19 at the break before finishing off another double-digit margin of victory in the second stanza.
Belhaven's only advantage was a two-point lead early in the first half at the 17:34 mark.

"We're pleased with the win, I'm not totally pleased with how we played." said Coach Marty Rowe. "We have to be recommitted to doing the things we did before the break."

The Lady Flames continued to shoot the ball well converting 23-of-51 from the field (45 percent) and 33 percent from behind-the-arc (6-of-18). Defensively Lee made things difficult for the Blazers, limiting them to 34 percent shooting from the field. The Mississippi club managed just three 3-pointers on 12 attempts (25 percent).

German led the way with 18 points and dished off eight assists for the Lady Flames. Miller added seven boards to go along with her 18 points. Julia Zimmeran added nine markers, scoring all her points from 3-point distance, going 3-of-9 from downtown. Senior guard Brooke Hamby added seven points to round out the Lee attack and Mary Jackson had seven rebounds and four steals in her 23 minutes of action.

"Karley (Miller) picked us up with some big offensive rebounds in the second half. Holly (German) had an off-shooting night but had eight assists and played great defense for us." noted Rowe.

The Blazers had three players in double-figures. Ashley Wakefield managed 14 points, Erika Leflore registered 13 points and Sarah Carr finished with 10 markers.

Coach Rowe talked about tomorrow's match-up, "It's going to be a tough game. It's a short turnaround time and William Carey has a very balanced scoring attack. As we get back into conference things are going to get harder. How we handle adversity is going to be a key for us. We're going to be playing teams that are much more familiar with us."

Lee will continue the road trip tomorrow afternoon as they will travel to Hattiesburg, Miss. to battle another SSAC foe William Carey. Tip time is slated for 4 p.m.
