TACOMA, Wash. --- The No. 20-ranked George Fox women's basketball team traveled North Friday to take on Pacific Lutheran, winning the road contest, 68-54.

Recap:
The first quarter proved to be highly contested, as the teams struggled back-and-forth. It was the three point shooting of the Bruins that gave the team a slight advantage by the end of the first, 18-16.

The George Fox defense clamped down in the second quarter, allowing the Lutes to score only nine points to the Bruins' 15. The defense was again anchored by Kaitlin Jamieson, who blocked three shots in the first half.

Kimberly Frost led the first half offense with eight points, while Emily Spencer provided a spark off the bench with seven.

The Bruins entered the half up 33-25.

The Lutes were able to fight back in the third quarter, cutting the Bruins' lead to just five heading into the final period of play.

Frost terrorized ball handlers to the tune of three steals in the fourth quarter alone, as the Bruins outscored the Lutes, 21-12, earning the victory.

Top Performers:
Frost recorded a career-high 19 points on only eight shots while also grabbing six rebounds, dishing five dimes and recording five steals. Frost is now two steals from grabbing eighth All-Time in career steals and three steals from taking seventh All-Time. Jamieson continued her solid rim protection with four blocks in the contest.

What It Mean:
The Bruins move to 3-1 in the conference and 11-2 overall with the win.
