Women's Basketball Bested by #14 Loggers

Women's Basketball Bested by #14 Loggers

Written by Student Assistant Jake Bilyeu

TACOMA, Wash. – Lacey Nicholson and Samantha Kelleigh each poured on 15 points but the Pacific Lutheran University women's basketball team was unable to keep pace with 14th-ranked University of Puget Sound, stumbling 91-58 on Tuesday night in a Northwest Conference contest inside Memorial Fieldhouse.

The Lutes' (1-15, 0-7) first half offense was led by Nicholson, who didn't miss any of her five shots in the second quarter. Nicholson scored 15 of the team's 26 points in the first half, but the Loggers (15-1, 7-0) used hot and consistent shooting to stay ahead of the Lutes, hitting their first seven shots and nine of their first 11 to take a 48-26 lead into the halftime break.

The Loggers created even more separation in the second half with a 16-0 run in the third quarter. The Lute offense recovered in the fourth, as Kaelyn Voss scored all nine of her points in the final period, helping PLU outscore the nationally-ranked hosts 23-16 in the final frame. 

Nicholson finished tied for a team high with 15 points, shooting seven-of-15 from the field in addition to hauling in five rebounds. Kelleigh provided a spark off of the bench, hitting three shots from downtown to match Nicholson with 15. Voss had nine along with four assists 

The Lutes have a short week ahead of them, but can focus all of their attention this weekend on Linfield College, who sit just above PLU in conference standings. They'll head to McMinnville, Oregon this Saturday at 4 p.m. to get back on the winning track.
