Lindsey Roddy drives to the basket is Wednesday's big win over Trevecca.
Three seniors led the way for the Lee women’s basketball team as they improved to 3-0 on the year with a convincing 72-43 victory over Trevecca Nazarene University on Tuesday evening inside Walker Arena.

Lee led by only 35-29 at the halftime break but put the contest completely out of reach by out-scoring Trevecca 30-10 in the third quarter.

Abby Bertram and Taylor Boggess had 17 points apiece while Becca Cheeks finished with 15. Boggess nailed five 3-pointers and Cheeks joined Lindsey Roddy to lead the Lady Flames with six rebounds each.
Bertram followed with five boards as Lee out-rebounded the visitors 40-27.

Coach Marty Rowe used 13 players and 11 scored as Lee dominated in every category, scoring 24 points off turnovers, 36 in points off the bench, 17 second chance points and 10 fast break points. Lee’s bench out-scored the Trojans 39-15.

Roddy and Maddie Long dished off four assists apiece as the Lady Flames had 15 assists to only seven for the visitors. Lee only turned the basketball over 10 times while the Trojans were guilty of 17 floor mistakes.

“We did some good things tonight but we have lots of things to work on for this weekend,” said Coach Rowe. The Lady Flames will be back in action on Saturday when they host Clark Atlanta at 6 p.m.

Olivia Stephens was the only Trevecca player in double figures. She finished with 11 points while Bayleigh Carmichael got into early foul trouble and followed with eight points and four rebounds. Lee’s defense held the Trojans to only 32 percent from the field and the visitors were able to make 2-of-16 3-point attempts.

On the other hand, Lee shot 43 percent from the field but Bertram and Halle Hughes were the only other Lady Flames to convert 3-point attempts. “Trevecca has a talented young team that is going to continue to improve this year. It’s a good win for our team,” concluded Coach Rowe.
