Lee Women Rally In The Fourth To Beat Mississippi College

Thursday, January 20, 2022
 Trailing 50-45 at the end of three quarters, Lee exploded for 25 points in the final frame and walked away with a hard-fought 75-65 win over host Mississippi College on Thursday evening. The battle was tied nine times and featured 12 lead changes. The Lady Flames improved to 13-3 overall and 6-2 in GSC play. The Lady Choctaws dropped to 8-8, 3-6.  

“We just hung in there tonight,” explained Coach Marty Rowe. “It’s a tough place to play and they are a much different team than we saw a few years ago.” The Lady Flames will continue their Mississippi journey on Saturday afternoon when they face rival Delta State in a GSC contest scheduled for 3 p.m.
(EST). 

Senior Camryn Grant led the Lee comeback with a career-high 20-point performance. She almost produced a double-double by pulling down nine rebounds. All totaled, Grant made 6-of-7 shots from the field and 8-of-10 free throws. “Camryn really gave us a huge lift tonight and that’s what we need from her every night is energy and attacking the boards,” praised the Lee coach. 

Haley Schubert battled foul trouble but finished with 17 points and dished off seven assists. Hannah Garrett enjoyed a solid performance with 16 points and eight rebounds. She made 4-of-7 3-point attempts. Halle Hughes added a pair of late triples and joined Julia Duncan with four rebounds, but the Lady Flames lost the battle of the boards 42-40. Lee shot 44% overall from the field, 40% from 3-point range and canned 15-of-22 free throws. 

Freshman Ally Alford was outstanding for the Lady Choctaws. She finished with 23 points, including four 3-pointers and nine rebounds. Dezirae King tallied 13 points while Amelia Bell and Kayla Bradley added nine markers apiece. Bell grabbed eight rebounds.  

“Defensively we’ve got to be much better start to finish, but down the stretch I thought we stepped up on both ends,” pointed out Coach Rowe. Lee held Mississippi College to 38% shooting from the floor, 33% from beyond the arc and the Lady Choctaws converted just 14-of-23 free tosses.
