Coach Lee Earns 100th Victory Leading Lady Bears

Baton Rouge bounced back to win their first game in conference play. The Lady Bears beat Delgado 70-63.

Saturday's win was a milestone victory for Head Coach Paula Lee; the win is her 100th career victory leading BRCC. At the beginning of the year, Lee had won an average of 19 games per season while qualifying each season for the Region 23 Tournament in Clinton, MS. During the 2014 season, Lee led the Lady Bears to a Region 23 Championship and qualified for the NJCAA National Championship, the only team in the history of BRCC Athletics to reach this feat.
