COLLEGE PLACE - Waitsburg-Prescott upended Walla Walla Valley Academy 53-33 in Southeast 2B boys basketball action Saturday.

W-P jumped to a 17-2 first-quarter lead. The teams scored 16 each in the second quarter.

"We played really good defense in all our three of our first games, including tonight, especially in the first quarter," said W-P coach T.J. Scott.

"In the second quarter, Matt Moore of WWVA scored six or seven points to lead them back. Moore was quick on the dribble and when we shut him down by closing the lane, we were a lot better off."

Zach Bartlow led the charge for Waitsburg-Prescott, sinking 13 points. Moore led WWVA with 11. Kris Cady led W-P with 13 rebounds.

Scott was pleased with his team's shooting from behind the arc.

"We shot just 1-of-16 from the 3-point line coming into the game, and then we made four three pointers tonight, which is an improvement. It was something that I was looking forward to seeing," he said.

W-P is 2-1 and 2-0 in league.

"Overall, it was a good team basketball effort," Scott said.

W-P plays again at the Whitman Classic tournament Dec. 28.
