King Men Race Past Lee 99-85

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
The King Tornado used a 25-14 run over the last 6:30 of the game to top the visiting Lee men's basketball team, 99-85 on Monday evening in a non-conference battle.

The Flames pulled within three at 74-71 on a Michael McGuirk triple with 6:36 remaining in the game but from there it was all Tornado, connecting on six second half 3's and getting to the basketball at will.

Despite the loss Ryan Montgomery had another huge game with 28 points and five rebounds. The aggressive senior got to the line 12 times and hit 10.
Montgomery is averaging 24.8 points per game through the first four contests this season.

McGuirk came back from an early season injury to drop 17 points while connecting on 3 of 6 from beyond the arc. Kentrell Evans added seven points, five assists, four rebounds and swiped three steals.

The Flames struggled to contain a balanced scoring attack from King with six different players scoring in double-figures.  Jordan Floyd led the way with a game-high 29 while Josh Releford canned four triples and finished with 20 points.

Two players posted double-doubles as Damion Ottoman had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Mike Salmon added 10 and 10.

King was nearly perfect from the charity stripe going 23 of 24. The home team shot 47.9 percent from the field. The Flames were a solid 25 of 31 from the free throw line but went just 8 of 28 deep and registered 41.3 percent from the field.

The Flames fall to an even 2-2 in the year while King remains undefeated at 4-0.

Lee will jump into Gulf South Conference play on Saturday as it travels to Auburn Montgomery for a 4 p.m. tip.
