The Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Basketball Team (8-2) scored early and often en route to an 89-41 victory over St. Andrews (0-6) Monday evening at Shuford Memorial Gymnasium.
L-R sophomore forward Whitney Brinkley (Asheville, N.C.) led the way

with a career-high 23 points to go along with nine rebounds on 10-of-14 shooting while freshman guard Jenni Gust (Colfax, Wis.) added 14 points off the bench as the Bears raced to leads of 15-0 and 24-2 en route to the relatively easy victory.
The Bears held a 35-11 lead at halftime after limiting the Knights to just 24 percent shooting (four-of-17) in the first half.
Sophomore guard Alexis Katt (Euharlee, Ga.) added 10 points for Lenoir-Rhyne, who shot 62 percent (24-of-39) after intermission in building its lead to as many as 48 points. 
The Bears also held a 40-16 advantage on the boards as Lenoir-Rhyne kept St. Andrews without a point until 5:41 into the game.
St. Andrews was led by Brittany Roberts (Concord, N.C.) with a team-high 17 points but the Knights were done in by 39 turnovers in the contest as they still search for their first victory of the year.
The two teams will play each other again next Thursday, December 15, beginning at 4:00 p.m., in Laurinburg, N.C.  L-R also travels to Fayetteville State on Friday, December 30, for a 5:30 p.m., contest.
