The Lee University women’s basketball team bounced back from its first loss of the season on Thursday evening with a 75-63 win Saturday afternoon at Christian Brothers University.

The Lady Flames (8-1, 1-1 GSC) once again found themselves down by double-digits at the halftime break. Lee mustered eight points in each of the first two quarters and trailed 27-16 following the first 20 minutes of play.

Christian Brothers (2-5, 1-1 GSC) upped its lead to 17 a little over two minutes into the second half before Lee began to k to cut the deficit to four by outscoring CBU 34-27 in the third quarter.
The Lady Flames completed the comeback with 25 points to nine for the hosts in the fourth quarter.

“That certainly was a different type of game for our team,” said Lee head coach Marty Rowe. “We weren’t very good in first half and give CBU credit for coming right at us. We showed a lot of guts in the second half as a team and can certainly build off that effort.”

Haley Schubert converted 11-of-12 free throw attempts on her way to a game-high 28 points. She also contributed four rebounds and six assists. Halle Hughes added 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Hannah Garrett and Anna Muhonen rounded out the double-digit scorers for Lee with 11 points each. Garrett hit the boards for a game-high eight rebounds. Camryn Grant and Addison Smith grabbed five rebounds a piece to help the Lady Flames outrebound the Lady Bucs by a 42-30 margin.

“We got great contributions from multiple players off the bench that won’t necessarily show up in the box score. Our collective effort as a group provided the spark to give us the win today,” concluded Rowe.

CBU had two players reach double figures in scoring. Emily Jones tallied 17 points while Karlee Bates contributed 11 in the loss. Jones also led the Lady Bucs with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals.

The Lady Flames were 24-for-65 (.369) from the field and made 6-of-20 (.300) attempts from behind the arc. CBU was 21-for-50 (.420) overall and made 8-of-25 (.320) 3-pointers. Lee garnered a big advantage at the free throw line where they made 21-of-22 attempts, while CBU made 17 trips to the charity stripe and converted 13.

Lee returns to action on December 11 when West Florida travels to Lee for another GSC showdown. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. EST in Paul Dana Walker Arena.
