On the back of Lee's warmup shirts is the inscription, "We don't rebuild . . . We rebound."

But it was Lake Braddock's Laura Teter who got the lion's share of the rebounds last night, grabbing 17, in addition to scoring 22 points, to lead the Bruins to a 55-43 victory over Lee in the championship game of the first Warhawk Winter Classic at Madison.

As a team, Lake Braddock (8-0) outrebounded the Lancers, 48-30. But it was the Bruins' offensive boardwork -- the continual second, third and fourth shots -- that doomed Lee (7-1).

"The coaches told us that we had to block out underneath and try to get {Lee's 6-3 freshman center Zekie Blanding} in foul trouble," said Teter, the tournament MVP.

The Bruins did just that. Blanding picked up her third foul with 4:46 to go in the second quarter and was a nonfactor the rest of the way.

Early on, Lake Braddock had trouble getting the ball inside to Teter, as the Lancers' zone surrounded her. So the other Bruins had open shots, and forward Karen Jenkins paced her team with 10 first-half points.

Eventually, Teter found the seams. "They were in a 1-3-1, so we played a box offense and stepped in the open gaps," she said after scoring 15 of her points in the second half.

Angie Akins's lay-in brought the Lancers to within 34-32 late in the third quarter. But Teter dominated the next 5:30, keying a 15-2 run that gave the Bruins a comfortable, 49-34 lead with just over four minutes remaining.

First, Teter stole the ball on the defensive end, raced down court and sank a turnaround jumper from the right side. On the Lancers' next possession, she again stole the ball and again connected for two points, this time on a lay-in from the left side.

After a Teter defensive rebound, Chris Gleisner caught an outlet pass and scored, giving Lake Braddock a 40-32 lead at the end of three quarters.
