Lc Hands Whitworth Painful Loss

Men’s basketball

Lewis & Clark College struck Whitworth’s championship hopes a major blow Saturday night, thumping the Pirates 96-84 at Portland.

The Pioneers, who began the weekend ranked 15th in the NAIA poll, one spot ahead of the Pirates, romped to a 50-34 halftime lead to key the victory.

Whitworth, which shared first place with Pacific University before bowing to the Boxers on Friday night, saw its record fall to 16-6, 9-5. Lewis & Clark edged past the Pirates into second place with a 17-4, 9-4 record.

Guards Brooks Meek and Perry Lam teamed up with center Jeff Flowers to account for most of Lewis & Clark’s scoring. Meek scored 27 points, eight more than Lam. Flowers collected 21 points.

Nate Williams topped Whitworth with 21 points. Teammates Jeff Mix and Doug Schulz scored 16 and 11 respectively.

Long-distance shooting was a big difference. The Pioneers connected 10 times and Whitworth finished 3 for 18 from 3-point range.
