Lee Women Win 77-64 At Barry University

Friday, November 26, 2021
 The Lee University 12th-ranked Lady Flames improved to 6-0 overall with an impressive 77-64 victory over host Barry University on Friday afternoon. Coach Marty Rowe’s club will continue their adventures against the Sunshine State Conference teams on Saturday at 2 p.m. when they move on over to Fort Lauderdale and face Nova Southeastern. 

Haley Schubert led the victory with 19 points. She made 8-of-16 shots from the floor and dished off six assists. Freshman Anna Muhonen came through in a big way, tallying 14 points, canning 6-of-9 attempts from the field and pulling down six rebounds.
Julia Duncan and Halle Hughes also scored in double figures with 11 markers apiece. Hughes was on target, making 4-of-6 field goal attempts and grabbing six boards. Cam Grant helped her Lady Flames win the battle of the boards 44-40 by pacing Lee with 10 rebounds. She also had seven points.  

“It was a great job by our team, battling through some adversity and foul trouble today. Barry is a talented team, and this was a really good win for our girls,” said Rowe in praising his Lady Flames. “We played with a high level of energy today and we will need it again tomorrow against Nova.” 

Adversity was the name of the game. The Barry club marched to the free-throw line 32 times, converting 23 while the Lady Flames were awarded just 12 freebies and canned 11. Lee shot 47% from the field and the defense held Barry to just 28% shooting but the home team did connect on 9-of-22 triples (41%). On the other hand, the Lady Flames connected on just 20% of their 3s.  

Harriet Swindells paced the Lady Bucs in scoring with 18 points before fouling out. She also tallied 15 of her points off turnovers according to the Barry stats. No other Lady Buc player scored in double figures. Dasiah Thornton added nine points while Chiara Fusari and Ashleigh Pink pitched in with eight points apiece. Swindells was also her team’s leading rebounder.
