TACOMA, Washington – Freshman Samone Jackson scored a game-high 17 points and the Puget Sound women's basketball team completed its seventh consecutive season sweep over crosstown rival Pacific Lutheran with a 70-48 triumph against the Lutes in Memorial Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.
Puget Sound (12-6, 7-2) moves into sole possession of second place in the Northwest Conference, trailing only No. 2 George Fox (17-0, 8-0)
The Logger defense answered the call early and often, forcing the Lutes (6-12, 2-7 NWC) into 30 turnovers, including 17 in the first half. Jackson locked down PLU senior guard Megan Abdo to the tune of two points on 0-for-6 shooting from the floor. Abdo entered the game as the Lutes' leading scorer, averaging nearly 11 points per game.
The Loggers have a tall task on Saturday, Jan. 30, when they host No. 2 George Fox for a 4 p.m. tipoff. The Loggers and Bruins met twice in the postseason last year, as the Bruins won both contests.
