Prewitt delivers masterful performance for college women’s hoops squad in tournament finale

A Valley college women’s basketball player demonstrated today why she may be the most important player on her team.

Fresh off a game-high 23 points in yesterday’s Loggers win over Coe College of Iowa at the D3hoops.com Classic in Las Vegas, University of Puget Sound sophomore Elizabeth Prewitt did herself even better in more ways than one in today’s game against Simpson, also of Iowa. Prewitt, a 2015 Mount Si High School grad from Snoqualmie, scored a game-high 31 points, a new career high, but more importantly, hit two key three-pointers to start an overtime session after the two teams finished regulation in a 59-59 tie. That pair of threes sparked the Loggers in the extra frame, as they outscored Simpson 18-10 in that period and won 77-69 earlier this afternoon to sweep their two games in the holiday tournament, held at the South Point Hotel and Casino on the Strip.

She finished 5-10 from beyond the arc on the afternoon and a solid 12-22 overall from the floor, and also collected five rebounds and an assist in 31 minutes of work for UPS, who fended off the upset bid from the struggling Simpson squad to move to 9-2 overall on the season.

Puget Sound now is headed home and will return to conference play next weekend as they host Willamette and Lewis & Clark College, both from Oregon.
