LEBANON, Tenn. – Carli Codner-Pinto netted 18 points with four 3-pointers but Cumberland shot just 30 percent from the field and Lee University jumped out early and never looked back in an 87-48 victory over the Phoenix in a women’s basketball exhibition game Wednesday night at Walker Arena in Cleveland, Tenn.

Cumberland plays in the Coke Classic this weekend in Point Lookout, Mo., taking on College of the Ozarks on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Mid-America Christian on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The Flames (2-1) opened the game with an 11-1 run and led 21-6 at the end of one period, with Cumberland making just 1-of-10 shots in the quarter. Lee connected on 11-of-18 field goals in the second period, extending the lead to 48-19 at intermission. CU committed 17 first-half turnovers, which the home team turned into 20 points.

The Phoenix fared much better in the second half, with Lee outscoring CU, 39-29. Codner-Pinto made all four of her 3-pointers and scored 16 of her 18 points in the final 20 minutes. De’Naizha Elder finished with eight points and Briana Vandlen added six off the bench.

Taylor Boggess and Haley Schubert netted 15 points apiece for the Flames and Kayla Tillie collected 12 points while Becca Cheeks posted 11.

Devon Burns made 1-of-2 foul shots for the Phoenix to start the contest but two baskets by Schubert and a 3-pointer from Tillie gave Lee an 11-1 advantage just over three minutes into the game. Vandlen connected on two free throws and then a jumper, cutting the deficit to 11-5, but that was the only made basket of the period for CU.

Lee netted 10 straight points at the end of the quarter, including two field goals from Schubert, before a free throw by CU’s Dominique St. Louis made it 21-6 at the end of 10 minutes.

Anna Woodford and Boggess each made a pair of 3-pointers and Boggess added a layup before another field goal by Schubert gave Lee a 37-10 lead just over three minutes into the second period. Another three from Boggess and two baskets by Cheeks increased the advantage to 48-15.

Elder posted two free throws and a jumper to end the half and Cumberland trailed 48-19 at the break.

Codner-Pinto recorded a 3-pointer and a jumper midway through the third quarter and added another triple later in the period. Britany Miller added a layup for CU, but a 3-pointer from Cheeks increased the Lee advantage to 67-30 at the end of 30 minutes.

Codner-Pinto netted two more 3-pointers as well as two foul shots in the final quarter. Burns collected an old-fashioned 3-point play in the final 90 seconds as well.
