The Lenoir-Rhyne University Women's Basketball Team started hot and never slowed down, defeating the Winston Salem State Rams on Sunday afternoon in Shuford Gymnasium, 86-59.

Senior Madi Suddreth returned to her normal offensive performance, leading all scorers with 22 points. Kendall Toineeta flirted with a double-double effort, putting up 12 points to go along with the game-leading nine assists.

The Bears were suffocating on the defensive end of the floor, holding the Rams to just 16-of-58 shooting (27.6 percent) while Lenoir-Rhyne was an impressive 32-of-62 (51.6 percent) on the afternoon.

The home team put on a passing clinic, distributing 20 assists while the Rams only managed five. The bench for the Bears outscored the bench for the Rams, 33-19, while both teams scored in the paint with LR holding the 50-48 advantage in that category.

Brionna Pate (17), Teara Johnson (13) and Amaya Tucker (11) led the Rams and all scored in double-figures.

Suddreth put up her second 20-point performance and her fifth double-digit scoring effort on the season. Toineeta keeps her hot hand going as she recorded her fifth-straight double-digit scoring performance.

This win was the first in Shuford Gymnasium for the Bears in the 2018-19 campaign.

LR improves to 3-3 on the season. The Bears play its third-straight game at home as they take on South Atlantic Conference foe Queens University on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 6 p.m.
