After leading the Lee men’s basketball team to their ninth and 10th straight victories last week, senior forward Ryan Montgomery and freshman guard Beyuan Hendricks received Gulf South Conference honors the league office announced on Tuesday.

Montgomery was named the GSC Player of the Week for the second straight week after compiling 50 points in a road win at West Georgia and home victory over No. 13 Alabama Huntsville. The Chattanooga Central product scored 29 points as Lee knocked off the Chargers, 65-60 on Saturday afternoon in Walker Arena.

Hendricks scored a career-high 18 points on 6 of 8 shooting from the field and grabbed eight rebounds against the Wolves last Thursday.
The Cleveland native, who played his high school ball at The Baylor School, followed that up with nine points, seven rebounds and four assists on Saturday against the Chargers.

“Individual recognition for Ryan and Beyuan this week is a product of our team’s success.  A come from behind road win over a talented UWG team and continuing to hold serve at home over No. 13 ranked UAH put a cap on a good week for our team,” said Lee head coach Bubba Smith. “At this time of the year, you have to continue to find ways to improve.  This group continues to do that, and it shows in our team’s performance.”

Montgomery currently leads the league in scoring averaging 21.6 points per game. Hendricks comes off the bench to average 7.1 points per game. This is the second time he has garnered Freshman of the Week honors.

Next up for the Flames is a tough road trip to Montevallo and West Alabama next week. Lee visits the GSC-leading Falcons (11-4, 7-0) on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. before traveling to the Tigers (12-3, 5-2) on Saturday at 5 p.m.

“We look forward to going on the road this week and being challenged against two talented teams in Montevallo and UWA,” concluded Smith.

A Lack Of Civility At The Women's Rally

The behavior of our local radical left women was abusive and uncalled for. The next Woman’s Rally and March should be lessons in common decency and civility towards other women.

The women before me that broke the barriers in male-dominated professions would be embarrassed ... (click for more)
