PARKLAND, Washington – Jamie Lange continues to etch her name in the Puget Sound record books. The Lake Tapps, Washington native eclipsed 1,000 points for her Logger career as the Puget Sound women's basketball team beat Pacific Lutheran, 83-71, on the road Tuesday Night.
Lange entered the contest with 995 career points. Her milestone basket came 3:30 into the game. Lange got free in the post, received a pass from Meghan Hamel, and banked in an uncontested layup.
Lange is the second Logger this season to eclipse 1,000 points for her career. Elizabeth Prewitt reached the mark during a Puget Sound win against Nichols (Dec. 15) as part of the Pacific Northwest Tournament hosted by Pacific Lutheran.
Overall, Lange scored 19 points and pulled down eight rebounds against the Lutes (11-6, 4-5 NWC). Prewitt led all scorers with 21 points, and RaeAnn Allen chipped in 11 for the Loggers (14-3, 7-2 NWC).
The Loggers carried a 39-27 lead into halftime, thanks in large part to shooting 48.3 percent from the floor through the first 20 minutes. Defensively, Puget Sound forced PLU into eight first-half turnovers.
Pacific Lutheran cut the Loggers' lead to 69-66 late in the fourth quarter, but that's when Lange converted the old fashioned three-point play to push the lead to 72-66. Following a defensive stop, Cassidy Daugherty drilled a 3-point dagger to put Puget Sound ahead, 75-66 with just over one minute left in regulation.
Puget Sound's win streak against the Lutes is up to 21 games.
The Loggers return home Friday, Jan. 25 for a big matchup against No. 14/12 George Fox at 6 p.m.
