Lady Flames Take Down Tennessee Wesleyan

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
It was a bounce back win for the Lee women's basketball team Tuesday night as they defeated Tennessee Wesleyan, 61-54.

The victory, which moves Lee to 4-1 on the year, came just a few days after a hard fought defeat at Auburn-Montgomery on Friday evening.

In what always proves to be a very physical, close game, the Lady Flames held a slim 32-29 advantage at the break. The largest lead of the night was a nine point advantage for Lee at the 5:19 mark in the second half. Down the stretch the Lady Flames hit some big shots and came up with timely stops to put the game away, 61-54.


Once again it was junior Hollie German leading the way for Lee. She stuffed the stat sheet recording 18 points and six rebounds to go along with four assists.

Jenna Adams provided a punch in the post for the Lady Flames. Adams dropped in nine points to go along with nine boards. Karley Miller chipped in eight points and Julia Zimmerman added nine points, all from behind the arc, to help complete the victory.

"Jenna (Adams) was really good today, she got in early foul trouble, but she played aggressive for us tonight." noted Coach Marty Rowe.

The Lady Flames held the advantage on the glass. Lee outrebounded the Lady Bulldogs 33-23. At the free-throw line Lee had just six opportunities cashing in on five (83 percent). TWC went 11-of-16 (69 percent) from the charity stripe.

Lee's defense sufficated Tennessee Wesleyan for most of the evening. The Lady Bulldogs shot just 35 percent from the field (17-of-48). Rowe's club shot 44 percent from the field (24-of-55).

"It was a really tough battle but we made some nice shots down the stretch." Rowe said. "This was their first home game and they made some shots and there is a reason they are ranked in the Division II poll (NAIA)."

Cody Houck and Michelle Davis led the way for Tennessee Wesleyan. Houck had 14 markers and seven rebounds while Davis chipped in 13 points for the home team.

"This is the best pre-season schedule we have had. We go to Trevecca on Tuesday, we've got a nice stretch of a games that will really toughen us up." Rowe admitted.

Lee will stay on the road to battle a tough Trevecca squad in Nashville next Tuesday after a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday.

A Disturbing Trend At Exit 11 - And Response (2)

So, am I the first to notice a trend?   How many wrecks does exit 11 need before anyone asks "whats up with that?"  I have lost count of the wrecks that continue to happen, even after last year's awful loss of life (which I believe 51 percent of the blame should fall on the THP officer on duty).  The problem with this section of interstate are sight lines ...

Roy Exum: A Story You Won’t See

In a puzzling time when the big daily newspapers have veered strongly away from “all the news that is fit to print,” allow me to share a story that you very likely will not see on CNN, ABC News, or in the big media conglomerates that influence the way you think, the way you react and – as a result – easily warp our common senses. This story is very true. Late last Sunday afternoon, ... (click for more)
