Puget Sound's last game

The Loggers (23-1, 15-0 NWC) remained undefeated in league play by taking down crosstown rival, Pacific Lutheran, in a mid-week battle. Puget Sound won, 91-60, with Samone Jackson scoring 28 points, including six treys, and Jamie Lange recording another double-double, with 17 points and 17 rebounds.

More Moni

Jamie Lange has recorded four consecutive double-doubles, and has five overall this year. She most recently had a 17 point, 17 rebound game, in which she pulled down 10 offensive boards. Lange was named the NWC Student-Athlete of the Week after a double-double against Willamette in which she scored 21 points and pulled down 18 rebounds. She has scored in double figures for the last 14 games, and is averaging 11.6 ppg. She is second in the league for rebounding, averaging 8.5 boards per game.
