PARKLAND, Washington – The No. 6/7 Puget Sound women's basketball team showed little love for Pacific Lutheran as the Loggers beat the Lutes on the road, 91-60, on Tuesday night.

Samone Jackson led all players with 28 points. The sophomore guard shot 10-for-13 from the floor and 6-for-8 from 3-point range. Jackson has 77 made 3-pointers this season, and she is two away from setting the new Puget Sound single-season record.

Jamie Lange finished with her third consecutive double-double, totaling 17 points and 17 rebounds – including 10 offensive rebounds. She made all five of her free throws.

Caitlin Malvar added 10 points and four assists for the Loggers (23-1, 13-0 NWC).

Puget Sound entered halftime with a commanding 51-32 lead over the Lutes (1-23, 0-15 NWC). Jackson scored 18 points and shot 4-for-5 from 3-point range through the first 20 minutes, while Jaime Lange added 11 points and eight rebounds during that stretch.

Puget Sound eclipsed the 90-point mark for the fourth time this season, as the Loggers increased their season average to 80 points per game.

The Loggers conclude the regular season at Pacific on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 4 p.m. Puget Sound returns to Memorial Fieldhouse to host the first round of the Northwest Conference Tournament on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. (opponent TBD).
