Four score in double-figures as Loggers fall to PLU

PARKLAND, Washington – The Puget Sound men's basketball team fell to Pacific Lutheran 72-60 to begin Northwest Conference play on Tuesday evening.

Andre Lewis led the way for the Loggers (2-4, 0-1 NWC) with 14 points, while Jimmy Wohrer chipped in 12 points. Kohl Meyer recorded 11 points and Kyle King had 10 points.

The crosstown rivals played an even first half, exchanging baskets for twenty minutes. The Lutes (5-1, 1-0 NWC) led Puget Sound 37-35 at half time. PLU pushed their lead out in the first 10 minutes of the second half. A Lewis three-pointer brought the Loggers within four points with 6:15 to play in the game, but two consecutive layups by the home team extended the lead, and Puget Sound ultimately fell.

Puget Sound shot 40.0 percent (22-for-55) from the field, and 36.0 percent from beyond the arc (9-for-25). PLU shot 48.2 percent (27-for-56) from the field and 9-for-18 (50.0 percent) when attempting three-pointers. The Lutes outrebounded the Loggers 37-28. Dylan Foreman led PLU with 22 points.

Puget Sound will next play at George Fox on Friday, December 4. The game is scheduled to tip-off at 8 p.m.
