Neumann beat Lely 49-36 in the Beach ...

— St. John Neumann defeated Lely, 49-36, in a Beach Bash game in the Naples Holiday Shootout presented by Arthrex at Barron Collier on Friday.

The Celtics jumped out to an 11-0 lead and only allowed eight points in the first half.

“Anytime you can beat a bigger school like Lely, we’re happy about it,” Celtics coach Shannon McFee said.

McFee said the team refocused itself after Thursday’s unfocused effort in its 50-27 loss to St. Thomas Aquinas.

“We played with a lot more effort than we did yesterday,” St. John Neumann senior center Maggie Bender said. “We put yesterday’s game behind us.”

Bender led the Celtics in scoring with 20. She shot 8-for-9 at the free-throw line after a 0-for-6 performance at the line against Aquinas.
