BELLINGHAM - Walla Walla University held on here Saturday night to come away with a 62-60 win over Northwest Indian College in women's basketball action.
"We were up by 11 with about five minutes left," Wolves' coach Bill Clancy said. "We tried to give it away, but they wouldn't take it."
Northwest hit a couple of treys and forced a couple of WWU turnovers to tie the contest with two minutes left.
Heather McFadden scored a layin to put WWU back on top, and the Wolves survived.
"We didn't handle their press very well," Clancy said. "But Heather and Chelsea (Sims) played well for us."
McFadden scored 28 points to lead the way. Sims chipped in 12. Dominique Pusher finished with eight and McKenzie Duellman added seven.
The Wolves improve to 6-11 and will return to action Feb. 12 at the University of Great Falls in Great Falls, Mont.
