• As the Lee University men's basketball team prepares for its Nov. 2 opener against Tennessee Temple, one of the Flames' newcomers is Roane State transfer Antonio Thomas. Thomas, a 6-foot-4 guard/forward from Charlotte, N.C., averaged 15 points a game last season and excites Lee coach Tommy Brown with his versatility and athletic ability. "Valentino is an explosive athlete," Brown said in a Lee release. "He is very athletic and can really get to the rim. He has the athleticism and toughness to be a great defensive weapon as well. He's an even better person and a good student." According to Thomas, the Cleveland program truly is a dream destination. "The day before I made my decision, I prayed that God would show me the college I was supposed to attend in the form of a dream," the digital media major related in the school release. "In my dream that same night, I walked out of a building, turned around to look back at the building and at the top of the building was a flame symbol. I woke up and told my parents I was going to Lee."
