TACOMA, Washington – Puget Sound men's basketball seniors Easton Driessen and Jeremiah Hobbs could not have asked for a better sendoff Saturday night. Playing in their final collegiate game in Memorial Fieldhouse, Driessen and Hobbs helped the Loggers to a 98-75 win over Pacific, and secured a Northwest Conference Tournament berth in the process.
The Puget Sound (16-6, 9-5 NWC) defense forced 30 turnovers against the Boxers (11-12, 5-9 NWC). Offensively, the Loggers committed only 10 turnovers, marking their second-lowest total of the season.
The Northwest Conference Tournament field is set between No. 1 Whitman, No. 4 Whitworth, Linfield, and Puget Sound. The final two games of the regular season will determine seeding and host site.
The Loggers have a quick turnaround when they play at Pacific Lutheran, Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m.
