ALBANY, Ore. — Freshman Amyr Lowe scored 16 points off the bench to lead Linn-Benton Community College past visiting Portland Community College 75-55 in NWAC Southern Region action Monday night.

The win lifted the Roadrunners record to 5-6 in Southern Region play and 11-12 overall. Portland dropped to 0-11 and 1-20 overall.

Sophomores Kalli Frieze and Katlin Beovich-Farris added 10 points and 9 points, respectively. Lowe also led the Roadrunners with six rebounds.
