Deja Nicholas had standout moments for Lewis & Clark in last week's games against some of the top teams in the Northwest Conference. Against George Fox, the senior had six points and seven assists, scoring after a steal with 39 seconds remaining in the game to bring the Pios within two points after they had trailed by 20 in the third quarter. Sara Hogman did the same thing on George Fox's next possession to tie the game, forcing overtime. In the extra period, Nicholas had three assists to Ayisat Afolabi on baskets that either gave the Pioneers the lead or tied the game. Against Puget Sound, Nicholas opened the game with a block, rebound and assist to give the Pios an early lead.
