ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Brandon Walker and Taylor Rohde both delivered big offensive performances Friday as the Alaska Anchorage men's basketball team cruised to a 105-67 victory over Walla Walla University in the opening game of the 2010 AT&T Jamboree at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.

The Seawolves (6-3) got 25 points on 8-of-11 shooting, seven rebounds and four steals from Walker, who knocked down 5-of-6 from 3-point range. Rohde, a 6-9 center, was a force in the paint with 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting, plus a career-high nine rebounds in just 20 minutes.

The Wolves (0-4), an NAIA Division II program, were led by 17 points apiece from guards Josh Henderson and Tristan Greenidge.

Sparked by 14 points and seven rebounds from Rohde in the first half, Anchorage jumped to a 21-4 advantage and never looked back.

Greenidge played a solid all-around game for the Wolves. Greenidge grabbed six rebounds and handed out four assists.

Walla Walla couldn't overcome 22 turnovers to the Seawolves' six, and the hot-shooting Seawolves canned 39-of-78 shots from the floor, including a 14-of-33 performance from behind the arc.

The Seawolves returned to action Saturday when they hosted fellow NCAA D-II opponent Florida Tech in Game 3 of the AT&T Jamboree. Walla Walla played Alaska Fairbanks in Game 2 Saturday.
