TACOMA, Washington – Freshman Jamie Lange posted her first-career double-double as the No. 14/14 Puget Sound women's basketball team beat Pacific, 81-62, in Memorial Fieldhouse on Friday night. The Loggers pushed their win streak to nine game.
Lange finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench. Alexis Noren led the Loggers (16-1, 8-0) NWC with 16 points, while Elizabeth Prewitt and Claire Fitzgerald scored 13 and 12, respectively.
The Loggers' 8-0 start in conference play is the first time Puget Sound has won every game in the first half of its conference schedule since joining NCAA D-III.
The Loggers shot 52.9 percent (27-for-51) from the floor, marking their fourth game over 50 percent from the field.
Puget Sound held a 33-26 lead at halftime, but Pacific (3-13, 1-6 NWC) claimed a 40-39 lead midway through the third quarter. However, a free-throw by Lange began a 9-3 Logger run that was capped off by a pair Jackson of free-throws. Jackson's lone 3-pointer of the game put the Loggers up by 64-49, with 6:45 on the clock in the fourth quarter.
The Loggers have a rematch at No. 21/21 George on Friday, Jan. 27, at 8 p.m. Puget Sound was unranked when it upset the Bruins on Dec. 3, when George Fox was ranked No. 8 in the country.
