HONOLULU, Hawaii --- No. 11-ranked George Fox University's women's basketball recorded its largest winning margin of the season Sunday afternoon, as the Bruins defeated Lake Forest College, 92-43.

It was just the second time this season that the Bruins have scored over 90 points and the third time the Bruins had four or more players score double digit points.

Lake Forest took the first lead of the game after a minute of play in the first half, 3-0, but that would be the only time the Foresters led. George Fox would then go on a tear jumping out to a 22-point lead at the 8:19 mark, 30-8.

In fact, the Bruins held the Foresters under double digit points for the first 12 minutes of the game. After the Foresters scored their 10th point, the Bruins went on an 18-0 run to take a 39-point lead with just two minutes to play.

George Fox went into halftime up, 51-12.

The Bruins had three players in double digits: Jami Morris (10), Lauren Codling (11) and Justine Benner (10).

The hot shooting Bruins continued their performance in the second half with a 51.4 percent shooting clip from the field.

George Fox was led by both Morris and Codling, who finished the game with 13 points apiece. Codling added eight rebounds and a career-high seven steals. Benner finished with 12 points, while Sydney Beadle had a career day recording two career-highs with 10 points and eight rebounds.

The Bruins improve to 9-0 on the season and will enjoy a nice Christmas break before playing Linfield College in the first conference game of the New Year. The Bruins will travel to Linfield on Friday, Jan. 2 at 6:00 p.m. The Bruins will host their first conference game the very next day on Saturday, Jan. 3 at 4:00 p.m. against Puget Sound.
