Mountaineers silence Wolves

CALDWELL, Idaho — Walla Walla University grabbed a lead, but after making the opening basket of the game, not much else went right.

The Eastern Oregon University women’s basketball team cruised to a 96-34 win against the Wolves to open the Lady Yote Classic today.

The Mountaineers went on a 16-3 run following Walla Walla’s opening basket, and jumped out to a 44-16 lead by halftime.


The Mountaineers struggled to shoot the ball in the first half, but bounced back in the second and shot 43 percent from the field in the game. Walla Walla shot 20 percent from the floor in the eleventh straight loss of the season.

Brittney Newcomb and Lauren Mills led EOU with 16 points, apiece. Newcomb has led EOU in six of the seven games she’s played this season. The senior was off from the field, shooting 3-of-11, but connected on all eight shots from the free-throw line. Newcomb also dished out eight assists.

Mills, a freshman from La Grande, beat her previous season-high. The 5-foot-10 guard scored 14 points in the last meeting with Walla Walla Nov. 23.

Taylor Riley went 6-of-9 from the field with 12 points.

Kelsey Hill led the Mountaineers with 10 rebounds.

Michaela Garcia paced the Wolves with 12 points, while Lauren Pernu finished with 10 points.

It’s the third straight win for the Mountaineers against Walla Walla this season.

EOU (7-2) will play Puget Sound at the Lady Yote Classic at 2 p.m. Saturday.
