The Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Basketball Team (2-1) made it two victories in a row with a 60-46 triumph over Johnson C. Smith (0-4) Saturday afternoon on the final day of the Catawba

College Comfort Suites Classic at Goodman Gymnasium. L-R senior forward Whitley Culler (Mount Airy, N.C.) finished with a team-high 15 points while sophomore guard Jazmine Charles (Lexington, N.C.) added 14 points to lead the Bears to the win.
Johnson C. Smith's Brittany Dorsett (Winston-Salem, N.C.) led all scorers with 16 points but was the only player to score in double figures for the Golden Bulls.
L-R was in charge from the outset and raced to a 36-19 halftime lead. Trailing by a 13-12 score, the Bears took control with a 12-0 run capped off by a lay-up from Culler with 5:35 remaining before the break.
Johnson C. Smith tried to rally but couldn't get any closer than nine points the rest of the way.
Lenoir-Rhyne once again rose up defensively, limiting the Golden Bulls to just 29 percent shooting (16-of-56) for the contest and holding a 44-38 edge in rebounds.
L-R junior forward Ashia Mitchell (Spartanburg, S.C.) came off the bench to score 13 points to go along with a team-high seven rebounds in the win.
Lenoir-Rhyne returns to Shuford Memorial Gymnasium to face Winston-Salem State in its home opener on Tuesday beginning at 6:00 p.m. Johnson C. Smith, meanwhile, hosts Chowan in a CIAA contest on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
