Wednesday, August 31, 2005


Lipscomb's Lady Bisons placed five players in double figures on the way to a 94-50 rout of the Nashville All-Stars in an exhibition game Thursday night at Allen Arena.

"It was great to have a dress rehearsal and work out some of the first game jitters," said Lipscomb coach Frank Bennett. "We got to work against a zone, and we had the chance to work on a few other things."

Penny Jones, who sat out last season as a red shirt after transferring from the University ofHawaii , led the Lady Bisons with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

"Penny has started shooting a 3-point shot, and that has given an added dimension to her game," Bennett said. "We want her to shoot the ball. And she is also going to be a good rebounder."

Also scoring in double figures were Courtney Boynton (14), Sarah Woods (12), and Lindsay Daly and Dana Carrigan with 10 each.

"Sarah Woods played a very relaxed game," Bennett said. "Courtney shot the ball well," Bennett said.

Daly and Kaleigh Grossman each had seven rebounds for the Lady Bisons.

"Kaleigh was very active on the boards," Bennett said. "She was also perfect in shooting from the field (2-2) and free throw line (3-3). "

Catie Woods, a freshman, ran the point for most of the game, splitting time with Carrigan. Bennett liked what he saw from both of them.

"Catie is going to face a lot more pressure against Memphis , but she has always played good competition," Bennett said. "She made adjustments well in this game."

Renee Logan, a former Lipscomb University player, scored a game-high 18 points for the All-Stars.

Guard Karli Osborn and center Katie Beth Pate did not play in the game due to injuries.

The Lady Bisons open the regular season on the road Monday night at the University ofMemphis
