Heartache in Newberg

Puget Sound suffered a heart-breaking Northwest Conference loss at George Fox (Dec. 1). The Loggers were up by as much as 21 points in the first half, but the Bruins' offense woke up in the second half. George Fox hit a 30-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game into overtime, and the Bruins prevailed in the extra period, 108-106.

 

A dime short

Stellan Roberts nearly posted a triple-double against George Fox. He totaled 19 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists. So far this season, Roberts is the Loggers' second-leading scorer with 15.2 points per game, and his 4.8 assists per game rank third in the NWC.

 

Close to career-high mark

Jimmy Wohrer netted 34 points against George Fox, which is just two points shy of tying his career-best mark in scoring. After leading the NWC in scoring with 22.0 points per game last year, Wohrer is tops in the NWC in scoring so far this season with 24.0 points per game.
