Lutes' Win Streak Snapped by Bruins

Lutes' Win Streak Snapped by Bruins

Written by Student Assistant Christian Bond

NEWBERG, Ore. – A scoring drought midway through the game ultimately derailed Pacific Lutheran University on Saturday night, stumbling 101-70 to host George Fox University in a Northwest Conference men's basketball game inside the Wheeler Sports Center.

The score was 43-41 in favor of the Bruins (9-12, 7-5 NWC) with 3:12 left in the first half after Brandon Lester hit a pair of free throws. George Fox answered with the final nine points of the half and collected the opening seven of the second, a 16-0 run stretching across six minutes as the Lutes (11-10, 6-6 NWC) scored just six points in the first 10 minutes of the second half. GFU held PLU at arm's length the rest of the way, snapping the Lutes' four game win streak.

Four Lutes scored in double figures with Brandon Lester leading the way with 21 points on seven-for-14 shooting. He made all five of his free throw attempts and also grabbed seven rebounds. Jared Christy collected his ninth double-double of the season, scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds, along with four assists. The 6' 6" post did most of his damage from the charity stripe hitting eight free throws.

Dylan Foreman and Kyle Sawtell scored 11 points each. Foreman was good at the free throw line, hitting four of his five attempts while Sawtell did it from beyond the arc, knocking down three three-pointers. Tyson Birrer scored nine points and grabbed five rebounds.

PLU finished the game shooting 31.7 percent (19-for-60) while the host Bruins shot at a 57.6 percent clip (38-for-66) and owned a 50-22 edge in points in the paint.

The Lutes return home to Olson Gymnasium next weekend for games against nationally-ranked foes Whitworth University and Whitman College.
