Whitworth holds off UPS down the stretch

J.D. Larson Correspondent

Whitworth’s women used a 26-8 run throughout the latter part of the first half to build a lead over Puget Sound, and weathered foul trouble and hit free throws down the stretch to win 74-64 at Whitworth Fieldhouse.

Tiffany Speer scored six of her 23 during the run, and Sarah Shogren had 10 of her 20 during the Pirates’ (18-2, 9-2 Northwest Conference) run. Speer picked up her fourth foul with 13:51 left in the game and a 51-40 Whitworth lead, but the Loggers (15-5, 6-5) couldn’t take advantage of her absence.

Shogren added 12 rebounds for Whitworth, and point guard Wenchi Liu had seven points and nine assists. The Pirates hit 23 of 24 free throws, including 12 of 12 in the game’s final five minutes.
