A day after living uncomfortably in the 40s, the Lady Jays pushed the fast forward button Thursday night.

Freshman guard Naphessa Collier led the Lady Jays with 26 points and 14 rebounds as they used a quick tempo to run past Lee's Summit West 75-60 in a consolation game at the State Farm Holiday Hoops Invitational at Rackers Fieldhouse.

The faster tempo was a blessing for the Lady Jays who seemed bogged down in a 47-46 loss to Mother of Mercy in Thursday's opening round.
