Starr posts double-double in win over Judson University
Plymouth grad Alex Starr posted her career-first double-double for Purdue University Calumet as the Peregrines claimed an 84-78 victory over Judson University on Wednesday night in the Fitness and Recreation Center in Hammond.
Starr collected 26 points and a career-high 14 rebounds at the game. She finished with five 3-pointers at a 5-for-10 rate and converted at a nearly perfect 11-for-12 clip from the free throw line as PUC took an early lead and never looked back. Starr also tallied a steal and an assist in the win, which brought PUC to 7-3 overall and 1-0 in the CCAC, the program’s best start since the 1997-98 season.
Purdue Calumet will be back in action this Saturday when it hits the road to face North Park. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m.
