Lange's double-double powers Loggers over Beavers

PARKLAND, Washington – Jamie Lange notched her third consecutive double-double to lead the Puget Sound women's basketball team to a 67-44 win over Caltech in the final day of the Pacific Northwest Tournament hosted by Pacific Lutheran.

Lange came away with 17 points and a season-high 19 boards for the Loggers (6-2). Prewitt nearly recorded a double-double with nine points and 10 rebounds against the Beavers (4-5).

Lange and Prewitt were both named to the Pacific Northwest All-Tournament Team.

Puget Sound got off to a sluggish start Sunday. The Loggers shot 16.7 percent from the floor in the opening 10 minutes, and they trailed Caltech at the end of the first quarter, 12-8. Puget Sound kicked it into gear in the second quarter to claim a 28-21 lead at halftime, and the Loggers never looked back.

Puget Sound freshman Georgia Lavinder scored a season-high 12 points Sunday by shooting 4-for-8 from 3-point range.

The Loggers leave for Hawaii Monday to compete in the Street Shine Invitational in Honolulu. Puget Sound takes on Whittier (Dec. 19) and Chapman (Dec. 20).
