Whit women cold in Newberg

NEWBERG, Ore. — Another cold shooting night plagued the No. 19-ranked Whitman women as they dropped their second game in a row, falling to George Fox, 50-38, Saturday.

The loss puts Whitman at 422 in Northwest Conference play and 12-3 overall, and in third place in the NWC.

The 38 points is, by far, the Missionaries lowest point total for the season. Their previous low was 56 in their last game Tuesday night against Whitworth.

Whitman entered the game leading the conference in field goal percentage (46 percent per game), but only shot 21.6 percent Saturday.

Whitman’s defense kept George Fox under wraps in the first half, but when the Bruins found their offensive rhythm in the second stanza, the Missionaries’ poor shooting proved too much to overcome.

The Missionaries were led in scoring by Sarah Anderegg with nine.

Heather Lovelace came off the bench for eight, and guard Heather Johns had seven.

Johns led all rebounders with nine boards, and White chipped in seven — her season average.

The Missionaries, after a four-game road trip, return home to Sherwood Center Friday when Linfield visits for a NWC counter.

You've heard of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx, maybe there is a Jim Buchan column jinx as well. No sooner does he write up the Whit women's 11-1 record, they go and lose two in a row! Go Missionaries!
