Thursday, January 11, 2018
The Lee University Athletic Department has announced this Saturday's rivalry showdown with Shorter University as "White Out" night at Paul Dana Walker Arena. The women will tip at 5 p.m. while the men will follow at 7 p.m.

Anyone wearing a white shirt will be admitted at a reduced price. Adults can catch all the action for just five dollars and children (ages 18 and under) will be admitted for just two dollars.

Fans will also be treated to the amazing, acrobatic display of the Air Elite Dunkers at halftime of both the women's and men's games.
  Air elite is the leading provider of acrobatic slam dunk entertainment around the world. The air elite dunkers have performed at countless NBA games, NCAA games, corporate events, television shows, movies, and k-12 school programs.

The Lady Flames are currently riding a four-game winning streak after a 66-57 grind-it-out victory at West Alabama on Wednesday evening. Coach Rowe's ladies are 13-3 overall and currently third in the GSC with a 6-3 mark.  

The Flames sit at 9-6 overall and an even 4-4 in league play after dropping Wednesday's contest at West Alabama, 62-56. Coach Smith's club is just 1-3 coming out of the holiday break but every game has seen the Flames hold a late lead. On Jan. 4 Lee knocked off previously unbeaten and No. 15 West Florida, 69-68. 

One thing is for sure fans will be treated to an exciting brand of basketball on the court and plenty of fun-filled family entertainment throughout the night.
