A near upset

Puget Sound almost pulled off a remarkable upset on the road Saturday (Dec. 1), but No. 10 George Fox barely edged out the Loggers, 63-62. The Loggers (3-2, 1-1 NWC) held a one-point lead at the half, 34-33. The lead grew to 48-42 through three quarters, but the Bruins (5-1, 2-0 NWC) put together a big fourth quarter. George Fox shot 7-for-14 (50 percent) from the floor in the final 10 minutes, including 3-for-5 (60 percent) shooting from 3-point range. Elizabeth Prewitt led all players in scoring with 27 points.

 

30 for 30

The Loggers' No. 30 is only 30 points away from reaching 1,000 points scoring for her Puget Sound career. Senior Elizabeth Prewitt is the NWC's second-leading scorer (20.0 points per game) as she approaches the milestone.

 

Rae of sun

RaeAnn Allen's performance becomes bright with each passing game. A starter in all five games this season, Allen improved her scoring total through each of the first four games. She has scored in double figures in each of the last two games, including 15 points during a win against Pacific Lutheran (Nov. 27).

 

Efficient from the floor

Through three games this season (two starts), Jamie Lange leads the NWC in field-goal percentage with a mark of 68.0 percent. As she continues to ease her way into the season (20 minutes per game), Lange is averaging 12.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

 

Sorn for this

First-year Logger Gia Sorn is making an immediate impact for the Maroon & White. She has started all five games, and is averaging 11.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks.
