Loggers complete season sweep over Pacific Lutheran

TACOMA, Washington – Freshman Samone Jackson scored a game-high 17 points and the Puget Sound women's basketball team completed its seventh consecutive season sweep over crosstown rival Pacific Lutheran with a 70-48 triumph against the Lutes in Memorial Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.

Puget Sound (12-6, 7-2) moves into sole possession of second place in the Northwest Conference, trailing only No. 2 George Fox (17-0, 8-0)

Jackson was one of four Loggers to score in double figures. Alexis Noren netted 12 point, while Emily Sheldon and Elizabeth Prewitt both chipped in with 10.

The Logger defense answered the call early and often, forcing the Lutes (6-12, 2-7 NWC) into 30 turnovers, including 17 in the first half. Jackson locked down PLU senior guard Megan Abdo to the tune of two points on 0-for-6 shooting from the floor. Abdo entered the game as the Lutes' leading scorer, averaging nearly 11 points per game.

The Loggers have a tall task on Saturday, Jan. 30, when they host No. 2 George Fox for a 4 p.m. tipoff. The Loggers and Bruins met twice in the postseason last year, as the Bruins won both contests.
