The Lee Generals traveled to Enterprise for their first area competition of the year. Not only did both Generals teams walk away with a sweep, Lakeldrick Gardner and Jon’Detric Butler were met by Enterprise Community College after an impressive showing and offered the opportunity to continue their education and basketball careers.
The opportunity for this to happen came on the results of an 81-37 wipe out of the Wildcats in a game that was never in doubt. The Generals were led in scoring Butler and Gardner with eleven and five other Generals scored seven or more points. The victory improved the Generals to 17 – 1 and 1 and 0 in the area.
The Lady Generals continued to play very impressive at times but still find opportunities to let even the teams with limited talent hang around. The Lady Generals defeated the Lady Wildcats 57 – 42 after leading 18 – 2 after the first period. Zippy Broughton poured in a game high 19 points followed by Ti’Erra Lee with 14, and Niya Crawford with 10. All 14 of Lee’s points came int he second half when Broughton found Lee in the post possession after possession. Broughton totaled six assists on the night.
The Generals will be back in action Friday night when they face cross-town rival JD at Lee. We look for a packed house as both General teams look to improve to 2 and 0 in the area.
