Smith big in SOU’s rout of Pacific Union

ANGWIN, Calif. — Alexi Smith posted her fifth double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, Bree Park canned five 3-pointers, and the 15th-ranked Southern Oregon women’s basketball team wore down a Pacific Union squad equipped with only five players in a 90-41 win Sunday afternoon.

Ashley Claussen had 12 points for the Raiders (10-1), whose 13 players all got on the board. They shot 56 percent overall (38-for-68) and 9-for-19 from 3-point range a day after going 10-for-20 from outside.

Pacific Union (1-9), which went to work without a bench for the first time this season, got 13 points apiece from Amber Washington and London Robinson.

Courtney West added eight points and six rebounds, Kristen Schoenherr had seven points and six boards, and Tiani Bradford had six points, six assists and three steals. Park went 5-for-6 from downtown, making her 9-for-12 on the weekend.

The Raiders never trailed and led 40-21 by halftime.

SOU also defeated the Pioneers 107-80 on Nov. 16 in Ashland.

The Raiders return home next Friday and Saturday to work on their 1-1 Cascade Conference record with tilts against Eastern Oregon (10-3, 2-0) and College of Idaho (2-9, 1-1). Both games will start at 5:30 p.m.
