PLU’S SALISBURY NAMED NWC FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

The Northwest Conference released its weekly award winners on Monday, Dec. 3, with Pacific Lutheran University women’s basketball student-athlete Madison Salisbury landing NWC Player of the Week honors.


The Puyallup native collected a pair of double-doubles last week, helping the Lutes (2-2, 1-1 NWC) split their opening conference road trip of the season. Salisbury had 25 points and 11 rebounds and hit 76.9 percent of her shots from the floor in a 63-60 setback to crosstown rival University of Puget Sound on Tuesday, Nov. 27. The sophomore followed up that performance by scoring 20 points in an 80-68 win over Linfield College. Salisbury was a menace defensively, racking up 10 rebounds and five blocks in the win.


An Honorable Mention All-NWC selection last season, Salisbury finished the week averaging 22.5 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per game while hitting 66.7 percent of her shots from the field.


This marks the second time in her nascent collegiate career that Salisbury has won NWC Player of the Week, previously earning the honor on Dec. 18, 2017 after the Lutes finished the Pacific Northwest Tournament undefeated.

LADY LUTES TOP LINFIELD WILDCATS IN CONFERENCE PLAY

Madison Salisbury collected her second double-double of the season on Friday, Nov. 30, powering the Pacific Lutheran University women’s basketball squad to a 80-68 victory over host Linfield College in a Northwest Conference clash inside Wilson Gymnasium.

The Lutes (2-2, 1-1 NWC) asserted its dominance early, scoring 11 of the opening 13 points with six coming from Salisbury. PLU’s lead was extended to 15 off a Katie Taylorjumper with 2:07 left in the opening quarter as the Lutes enjoyed a 25-19 advantage after 10 minutes of action.

The host Wildcats (2-5, 0-1 NWC) clawed within a single point midway through the second quarter but PLU responded with nine consecutive points to reestablish a double-digit advantage. Kristin Sturdivan served as a catalyst for the run, draining a three with 5:21 remaining.

PLU kept Linfield at bay the entire second half, limiting the Wildcats to just seven points in the third quarter to net the squad’s second win over the past three games.

Salisbury finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and five blocks to set the tone for the Lutes while Taylor drained four of her six shots from beyond the arc, also scoring 20 points. Emma Janousek scored 13 points with nine assists and four steals while Sturdivan was the fourth Lute in double figures with a baker’s dozen.

Our offense was very balanced inside to outside,” said PLU head coachJennifer Childress. “Katie hit some timely threes that forced Linfield to extend their defense off our bigs. Emma proved her toughness playing 39 minutes with a great stat line.”

PLU scorched the nets in the first half, shooting 57.6 percent from the floor (19-for-33) ending the contest shooting at a 50.8 percent clip (32-for-63). That included success from beyond the arc, hitting eight treys while owning an advantage over Linfield in points in the paint (44-30), points off turnovers (20-8), and bench points (25-8).

We weren’t satisfied with the way we played defense the first half but we responded well in the second,” said Childress.

PLU resumes non-conference play on Thursday, Dec. 6, welcoming Walla Walla University to Olson Gymnasium. The Pacific Northwest Tournament begins on Saturday, Dec. 15, as the Lady Lutes host California Institute of Technology at 4 p.m. The following Sunday, PLU will host Nichols College at 4 p.m.

LADY LOGGERS NEARLY TOPPLE NO. 10 GEORGE FOX

Clutch baskets by Elizabeth Prewitt and Jamie Lange gave the Puget Sound women’s basketball team a couple of late leads at No. 10 George Fox, but the Bruins managed to come away with a 63-62 Northwest Conference win Saturday evening. 

The Loggers (3-2, 1-1 NWC) held a one-point lead at the half, 34-33. The lead grew to 48-42 through three quarters, but the Bruins (5-1, 2-0 NWC) put together a big fourth quarter. George Fox shot 7-for-14 (50 percent) from the floor in the final 10 minutes, including 3-for-5 (60 percent) shooting from 3-point range.

The Bruins held a 56-54 lead with three minutes in regulation. However, Puget Sound managed to grab a one-point lead following a Lange free-throw, a forced turnover, and a layup by Prewitt.

George Fox regained the lead with a 3-pointer with 2:11 on the clock. During the Loggers’ ensuing possession, Prewitt missed a jumper but Gia Sorn came up with a big offensive rebound. Lange capitalized on the second opportunity with a game-tying layup with less than 90 seconds left in regulation.

George Fox quickly answered back with a layup of its own, and the Bruins held on to the lead for good.

Prewitt led all players in scoring with 27 points, while RaeAnn Allen scored in double figures for the second consecutive game by netting 12 points.

The Lady Loggers return to local action at the Pacific Northwest Tournament held at Pacific Lutheran University. UPS will open the tournament against Nichols College on Saturday, Dec. 15, at 2 p.m. The following Sunday, the Lady Loggers will play California Institute of Technology at 2 p.m.

UPS MEN LOOKING TO REBOUND AFTER LOSS TO NORTHWEST

Although four Loggers scored in double figures, the Puget Sound men’s basketball team lost a non-conference game at Northwest, 86-76, Tuesday, Dec. 4.

Stellan Roberts netted a team-high 18 points, and Jimmy Wohrer finished with 14. Cal Hansen continues to push for his first-career double-double, as the freshman scored 11 points to go along with eight rebounds and four blocks. 

Zion Shepherd matched Hansen’s four blocks off the bench, and he tallied 10 points in 20 minutes.

The Loggers (3-4) suffered their largest rebound deficit of the season. The Eagles (9-5) came away with 44 boards, including 16 on the offensive glass. Puget Sound finished with half as many offensive rebounds, and 32 overall.

The Loggers trailed by only five points at halftime, and a 3-pointer by Wohrer gave Puget Sound a 70-68 lead with 7:33 on the clock in the second half. Northwest reclaimed the lead moments with a trey of their own, which sparked a decisive 12-2 run for Northwest.

Puget Sound has 10 days to regroup before traveling to Portland for a non-conference game at Warner Pacific, Dec. 14. The Loggers will then host Concordia Chigaco on Monday, Dec. 17. After a non-league, road game at Central Washington, UPS will return home on Thursday, Dec. 20, to host Benedictine from Illinois.

FORMER LINCOLN STANDOUT A.J. JOHNSON MAKES ALL-REGION

After a record-breaking season at receiver, Puget Sound’s A.J. Johnson has been named to the First-Team All-Region NCAA Div. III Team. The redshirt sophomore broke the Loggers’ all-time, single-season record of 1,096 yards receiving. He also tied Adam Kniffin’s 2010 record with five touchdowns in a single game. Johnson’s 92 catches on the year were just three shy of matching Kniffin’s single-season record from 2011. Johnson finished the season with 12 touchdowns.

Junior reciever Jewell Day was named to the All-Region Third Team after hauling in 61 receptions for 1,016 yards. Day led the Loggers with 14 touchdown receptions on the season.
