TACOMA — Pacific Lutheran rode a 31-9 run to a big first-half lead, but Evergreen State fought back and went on to a 70-60 victory in a nonconference game in Olson Auditorium.


After the Lutes (2-6) went ahead 33-16, Evergreen (5-6) responded with a 12-0 run to end the half, bringing the Geoducks within five at intermission.


Evergreen began the second half by scoring 10 of the first 14 points and, after fending off a PLU surge, took the lead for good at the 9:35 mark


Reserve Kurt Oliver scored 15 points — all on three-pointers — for the Lutes, and Sudon DeSuze had 11 points and 10 rebounds.


Josh Peterson had 15 points and eight boards for Evergreen.
