MEN'S COLLEGE HOOPS: L&C, WPC score upsets

FRIDAY SUMMARY

• Lewis & Clark knocked off 13th-ranked Whitworth 73-70 in overtime at Pamplin Sports Center to stay solidly in the Northwest Conference playoff race.

• Warner Pacific upset visiting Southern Oregon, the No. 14 NAIA Division II team, 69-54 at Bart Valentine Court.

• Oregon Tech picked up a key 68-64 victory at Concordia in the Cascade Collegiate Conference.

  • Pioneers rally for OT win

    Lewis & Clark, down by four points in overtime, came back to stun Northwest Conference leader Whitworth 73-70.

    Randall Jackson's jump shot L&C a 71-70 lead with 30 seconds to go, and Kurt Parker added two free throws with eight seconds left.

    The victory put the Pioneers alone in fourth place in the NWC with one game left in the regular season — 6 p.m. Saturday at home against Whitman (11-4, second in the NWC).

    L&C is 9-6, also trailing third-place Puget Sound (10-5), but one game ahead of George Fox and Pacific, both 8-7, for the fourth and final postseason spot.

    Bradley Carter led L&C on Friday with a game-high 15 points, hitting 6 of 7 field-goal attempts. He also had 10 rebounds.

  • Knights get big win

    Marcus Moore's career-high 25 points, on 8-for-11 field-goal shooting, helped lift Warner Pacific to a 69-54 win over 14th-ranked Southern Oregon at WPC.

    Moore sank two 3-pointers to turn back the Raiders' hopes down the stretch.

    SOU missed 13 of its first 14 shots and went on to shoot 25.4 percent from the field, including 3 of 24 from 3-point range.

    WPC led 26-24 at the half. An 11-0 run late in the game led to the final margin.

    Doug Thomas added 10 points for the Knights. That put him No. 10 on the school's career scoring list with 1,217 points.

    Warner Pacific plays host to Oregon Tech at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the regular-season final night for Cascade Collegiate Conference clubs.

    In the CCC, College of Idaho (15-2), Southern Oregon (11-6), Concordia (10-7) and Northwest (10-7) are the top four, with Warner Pacific, Oregon Tech and Northwest Christian tied for fifth at 9-8. Then comes Eastern Oregon (6-11), Corban (3-14) and Evergreen (3-14).

  • Cavaliers rally, then lose

    Concordia went from 16 points down to a 61-61 tie, but wound up with a 68-64 loss at home to Oregon Tech.

    Adam Herman led the Cavaliers with a game-high 19 points and 11 rebounds. Esvan Middleton also had a double-double for the Cavs, getting 12 points and 12 rebounds.

    Concordia wraps up its CCC regular season on Saturday with a 7:30 p.m. home game against Southern Oregon.
