Lady Flames Claim 65-48 Win At Belhaven

Saturday, January 5, 2013
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The No. 6 Lady Flames finished a tour of Mississippi unscathed with a 74-45 drilling of William Carey University. Less than 24 hours earlier, Lee recorded a 65-48 win at Belhaven University in Jackson, Miss.

The Lady Flames held a 14 point lead at the half and extended it to 29 with a little over 11 minutes left in the second half.
The closest the Crusaders would get the rest of the game was 22 points.

“Although it was our second game in less than 24 hours, everybody had their legs,” said Lee head coach Marty Rowe. “We shot the ball well and our conditioning paid off.”

Lee (13-1, 4-1 SSAC) had four players score in double-figures. Hollie German was 5-for-5 at the free throw line in tying for the game-high with 16 points. The junior added four assists.

Jenna Adams was 5-for-11 from the floor, including 3-for-6 from beyond the arc, in tallying 13 points and nine rebounds.

Karley Miller was perfect from the floor (5-for-5) to record 11 markers. The junior forward just missed a double-double with nine boards.

Brooke Hamby hit both of her three-point attempts and finished with 10 points and three assists. Julia Zimmerman nailed three three-point shots to add nine points in the win.

Ten of the 13 Lady Flames that saw action contributed to the point total. Myriah Iles had five points, while Rachel Lockhart and Kayla Beavers accounted for three points each. Caroline Smith and Christina Johnson rounded out the scoring two markers a piece.

“We wanted to have some balance and we were able to do that today,” said Rowe.

The Lady Flames blistered the nets at 54 percent (26-of-48) from the field, 50 percent (11-for-22) from behind the three-point line and 85 percent (11-of-13) from the charity stripe.

“When we shoot the ball well, we are an awfully good team and it opens up a lot more options for us,” added Rowe.

William Carey (7-6, 3-3 SSAC) hit 14-of-46 (30 percent) shots from the floor and 94 percent (17-for-18) at the free throw line, but missed all seven three-point attempts.

Erica Moore was the leading scorer for the hosts with 16 points. She was 4-for-8 from the field and made 8-of-9 charity tosses.

Haleigh Arcement threw in 10 points to give the Crusaders two players in double-figures.  Crystal Tucker had nine rebounds to go with five points.

The Lady Flames will be in action again on Thursday with a trip to Central, S.C., to face Southern Wesleyan University. The SSAC matchup is scheduled for a 6 p.m. tip.

Roy Exum: Driving In Reverse

Some hours later, as my dog and I sat in the dark, I thought a little more about that. If ... (click for more)
