The Scott Lee era at UW-Rock County got underway Saturday afternoon.


Lee, in his first year as the men’s and women’s head basketball coach, didn’t get the results he hoped for but was pleased with both teams efforts.


The UW-Rock County women lost 97-54 to UW-Waukesha County, while the Rattler men fell 119-53 to UW-Waukesha.


“I’ve never been so pleased with a loss in my life,” Lee said. “Both our teams executed the game plan to a “T,” but we just ran into two very good basketball teams.


“We’re not making any excuses. We’re in the process of putting in a new system for both programs, and we’re not where we want to be yet. We’ll continue to get better.”


Janesville Parker graduate Sarah Lancour led the Rattler women with 17 points, while Elkhorn’s Cassie Kane added 16.


Janesville Craig graduate David Rasmussen paced the UW-Rock County men with 18.


The UW-Rock County men will host UW-Barron on Wednesday night.
