The Lady Flames are currently riding a four-game winning streak after a 66-57 grind-it-out victory at West Alabama on Wednesday evening. Coach Rowe's ladies are 13-3 overall and currently third in the GSC with a 6-3 mark.  

The Flames sit at 9-6 overall and an even 4-4 in league play after dropping Wednesday's contest at West Alabama, 62-56. Coach Smith's club is just 1-3 coming out of the holiday break but every game has seen the Flames hold a late lead. On Jan. 4 Lee knocked off previously unbeaten and No. 15 West Florida, 69-68.
