Five Lee players scored in double figures and a total of 13 Lady Flames scored points in a 92-66 victory over Clark Atlanta inside Walker Arena on Saturday evening. The win improved the unbeaten Lady Flames record to 4-0 on the year and they will be back in action on Wednesday, hosting Bryan College in another 6 p.m. tip.
“Clark Atlanta is much improved from last year and forced us into some tough spots but overall it was a really solid win for our team,” said Lee coach Marty Rowe. The Lady Flames held a narrow 17-13 lead after one period but out-scored the Lady Panthers 24-13 in the second stanza and led at the break 41-26.
The margin continued to grow at the end of three frames with Lee up 68-41. Rowe began clearing his bench early in the final period.
Haley Schubert canned 7-of-10 shots from the field and paced the balanced Lee scoring with 15 points and a team leading five assists. Abby Bertram followed close behind with 13 markers and also pulled down five rebounds to go along with her four assists. Lindsey Roddy was 5-of-8 from the floor and tallied 12 points and grabbed five rebounds. Maddie Long followed her running mate with 11 points and Taylor Boggess finished with 10 points and four rebounds.
Becca Cheeks came off the bench and totaled eight points while freshman Morgan Carbaugh pitched in with seven points. Lee shot a solid 51 percent from the field (36-of-70) and went to the charity stripe 18 times and knocked down 15.
“We did a lot of good things tonight. We emphasized rebounding and we did that well on both ends for a majority of the game,” said Coach Rowe. Lee out-rebounded the physical Lady Panthers 48-30. Rowe was not pleased with his team’s 23 turnovers but many of those came late in the contest.
Coach Rowe always stresses defense and his club held the visitors to 32 percent shooting from the field and 24 percent from beyond the arc. The Lady Panthers were awarded 25 free throws and made 17.
