TACOMA, Washington – The Puget Sound men's basketball team had its highest-scoring game in nearly a decade as the Loggers beat Evergreen State, 119-91, in Memorial Fieldhouse during the first day of the Doug McArthur Classic Friday night.
The Loggers' (2-0) up-tempo offense scored the program's most points in a single game (regulation) since Puget Sound beat Cal State Stanislaus, 121-101, Dec. 8, 2007. The program record for points in a game is 140 (2006-07, vs. Willamette). The Loggers also tied a record for the most points scored by an Evergreen State opponent (University of British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2015).
For the second consecutive game, Jimmy Wohrer led all players in scoring. The junior netted 21 points by shooting 6-for-13 from the floor and 7-for-8 from the free-throw line. Walker Shibley-Styer added 14 points, including four 3-pointers. Max Basile also scored 14 points to go with six rebounds, and Zion Shepherd chipped in 12 points.
Puget Sound's defense came away with a remarkable 29 steals, as the Geoducks (0-2) turned the ball over 41 times.
Despite the high-scoring night, the Loggers still have room for improvement on the offensive end. Puget Sound shot 28.2 percent (11-for-39) from 3-point range, and 63.2 percent (24-for-38) from the charity stripe.
The Loggers close out the McArthur Classic by hosting Redlands on Saturday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m.
