Emma Morgan added nine points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals for the Lions (1-1). Savannah Galluci had six points and 11 boards. Butremovic also had three assists and two steals.
“We did a phenomenal job of working together and figuring out how to highlight our individual strengths,” coach Christine Corah said. “We moved the ball around the perimeter and were being reactive and reading the defense. … I’m really proud of them for finally starting to pull it together.”
