“It was nice to see us have to adjust (to Bryan’s style of play),” said Lee head coach Marty Rowe. “Now we can take a couple days, look at films and show them a lot of things to help us get a lot better.”

Lindsey Roddy was the offensive leader for the Lady Flames. Roddy made 6-of-7 shots, including a 4-for-4 performance beyond the arc, to finish with a game-high 20 points. The sophomore also dished out three assists and tallied two steals.

Erin Walsh and Anna Woodford connected on three 3-pointers each. Walsh finished with 13 points to go with seven assists and five rebounds. Woodford added five boards. Carrie Cheeks was the final Lady Flame in double-digit scoring with 10. Cheeks also pulled down eight rebounds.

Lee outrebounded the visitors 44-30 with Shelby Brown leading all players with nine rebounds. The Lady Flames made 54-percent (34-of-63) of their shots from the floor and were 15-for-31 (.484) from distance. Bryan was 24-for-61 (.393) from the floor and 9-for-22 (.409) behind the arc.

Amber Levi led the Lions with 17 points and six rebounds. Deandra Luna and Shayla Ludy chipped in 14 markers each. Luna also had five rebounds and six assists.

“Our expectations are that we get better every game,” added Rowe “We’re going to fight every day to get better. This is going to be a good team. It has a chance to be a special group and we’re going to push them to get to that level.”
