FOREST GROVE — After a signature win Friday night at No. 5 Lewis & Clark, the Whitman women’s basketball team showed no signs of a letdown as they controlled most of the game here Saturday night in defeating Pacific, 69–54.

The victory improves Whitman’s record to 4–0 in the Northwest Conference and 11–1 for the season. After losing in overtime to nationally- ranked NAIA Eastern Oregon University back on November 25, the Missionaries have won eight games in a row.

The Boxers dropped to 2-2 in the NWC, 9–3 overall.

Point guard Heather Johns paced the Missionaries in Saturday’s victory with 19 points, seven assists and seven rebounds. She was the only Missionary to score in double figures, but forwards Sarah Anderegg and Hallie Buse added nine each, and Tiffani Traver and Mary Madden contributed eight apiece.

Defensively, the Missionaries held the Boxers to only 32-percent shooting from the field. Whitman converted 50 percent of its shots (29-of-58).

Whitman plays at Whitworth on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
